The Holmes à Court Gallery and Niagara Galleries present recent paintings by the Utopian artist Angelina Pwerle.

Like many of the Utopia women artists, Angelina Pwerle began producing work with the Indonesian technique of Batik in 1986 at CAAMA.  Not long after, canvas and acrylic paint was introduced to her community and it has largely been in this medium that Angelina has come to national and international prominence.

Angelina’s work is predominantly concerned with representations of the Bush Plum dreaming. The Bush Plum is of the great significance to the Alyawrre women of the Eastern Desert region of the Northern Territory and Pwerle often depicts the changing seasonal influences on the plant. Pwerle works with intense areas of dotting, tiny marks that are built up over a dark ground to create an ambiguous surface that shifts and moves with remarkable liveliness.

Born c.1952, Angelina lives and works in Ngkawenyerre, Utopia, Northern Territory. Her work has been collected by many significant public and private collections including The Holmes á Court Collection, National Gallery of Australia, National Gallery of Victoria and the National Museum of Art, Osaka, Japan.

All works in the exhibition are for sale.
