Australia Aboriginal painting Awelyewe- Atnwengerrp Dreaming by Minnie Pwerle


A striking painting by famed Australian aboriginal artist Minnie Pwerle depicting her country "Awelyewe- Atnwengerrp". Intense colors, subtle hues transition and strong composition made this painting very special. Minnie Pwerle (Australian Aboriginal, c.1920-2006) Language: Anmatyerre/Alyawarre Skin name: Pwerle Region: Utopia Brief Biography: Minnie Pwerle was born on the banks of the Sandover River, 350 kilometres northeast of Alice Springs. Her country is Atnwengerrp and her language is Anmatyerre and Alyawarr. Minnie was one of six children and went on to become the mother of seven children including internationally renowned artist Barbara Weir. Minnie started painting batiks in the 1980's for the Robert Holmes a Court Collection.rnrnMinnie's paintings reflect her country, the bush tucker important to her desert heritage and the women's ceremonial body paint inherent in her culture. Minnie commenced painting on canvas in 1999 - and was immediately noticed by Galleries and Collectors worldwide - after a lifetime of ceremonial body painting. Minnie paints with distinctive linear fluidity as she depicts her country, Awelyewe- Atnwengerrp, Bush Melon, and the Bush Melon Seed. She experiments with bold and brilliant colors and adopts traditional body painting designs conveying her intuitive connection with her country. Minnie's work is immensely joyful. Her paintings convey a rare energy and meaning which is infectious to the viewer. She paints with a rich array of color and her work contains a compelling visual and spiritual power. The stories that she paints convey her deep connection with the land, and knowledge of the foods that it provides.rnrnMinnie is now regarded as one of Australia's most important indigenous talents and is compared with her late friend and contemporary, Emily Kngwarreye. She has exhibited extensively throughout Australia and the USA.
