GLORIA  PETYARRE

Gloria Petyarre was born c.1945 at Atnangkere Soakage, Utopia. Gloria Petyarre has been one of the most consistently well-known Aboriginal artists of the last 20 years. In 1995 she won the Wynn Prize for a landscape painting at the Art Gallery of New South Wales, with a sophisticated abstract-style 10-panelled work titled  leaves blowing in the wind. .

A leading member of the Utopia batik group in the 1980s, Gloria Petyarre travelled to Ireland, England, France, Thailand and India representing the Utopia women with the exhibition that showed these works in 1990 Utopia - A Picture Story, the Holmes a Court Collection.

Gloria Petyarre is one of the most widely exhibited Utopian Aboriginal artists whose works have been shown in hundreds of galleries around Australia and internationally.

 

MOUNTAIN DEVIL LIZARD

The painting depicts the curling pattern of the Mountain Devil Lizard's skin. In the Dreamtime Stories it is believed the lizard collected then deposited these ochre colours throughout the Utopian area. Aboriginal people use these colours for body painting in their ceremonies. Some members of the Petyarre family bear markings on their skin, similar to that found on the Mountain Devil Lizard.
