Jeannie Mills Pwerle

Utopia artist Jeannie Mills Pwerle has her traditional country at Irrwelty and Atnwengerrp, and has been part of the main painting group for over 25 years. Jeannie Mills Pwerle was a contributing artist to the first Utopia project where women painted their stories onto canvas. This exhibition, held in 1989 and titled ‘Utopia Women’s Paintings, the First Works on Canvas, A Summer Project’ was a turning point for the group of Utopia artists.

For the past decade the artists had developed their skills in the realm of batik making, bringing their traditional stories and designs to decorate dyed textile fabrics. By developing the skills of layered colours built up on the fabric from lightest to darkest, the artists had a great facility which allowed them to bring new approaches to painting when they started working with acrylic on canvas.

The artists also used their skill of building up layers to create veils of colour through which the underlying colours could be seen. The stylistic inventions that came from this shared history by the artists was the beginning of a new creative burst of painting that established Utopia artists at the forefront of popular artistic success in the Aboriginal art sphere.
