Utopia Artist - Awelye Body Paint, Bush Yam & Yam Seed Dreamings

Anna Petyarre

Anna Petyarre is a significant Utopia artist whose fine skills and innovative painting techniques define her impressive portfolio of paintings and subjects. Anna Petyarre was born on the Utopia homelands in 1960 and her language group is eastern Anmatyerre. She lives at Atneltyeye, or Boundary Bore and in Alice Springs.

Anna Petyarre has painted since she was child – her mother the late artist Glory Ngale was her first role model. Anna Petyarre is related to famous senior artists Emily Kame Kngwarreye and Kudditji Kngwarreye through her grandfather, who was a brother of Emily and Kudditji’s father. Anna Petyarre is a grandmother with five grandchildren.

The main subjects for Anna Petyarre’s art include Bush Yam and Yam Seed Dreamings, both of which belong to her grandfather’s and father’s country at Atneltyeye. From her own role as a traditional Aboriginal woman involved in ceremonies, Anna Pertyarre also paints Awelye, or ceremonial body paint design, associated with women’s ceremony.

Recent works have depicted ancestral country, with fine rows of dots marking out the locations of sandhill and bush country, river flood plains and sometimes waterholes and ceremonial sites. Anna Petyarre is famous for her artistic attention to detail in the complex and interwoven designs that she so carefully structures, aimed at expressing her traditional Anmatyerre culture.A selection of paintings by Anna Petyarre is available from Japingka Gallery, where collectors can buy Aboriginal art online with certainty of quality, authenticity and provenance of art works.  Aboriginal art status – Established artist.
