Introducing Molly Pwerle + New Paintings

Aboriginal artist Molly Pwerle, aged in her 90's

Molly Pwerle is an Australian Aboriginal artist aged in her 90's from a hard-to-reach remote community in Central Australia. And she loves to paint. With some help we've been able to ethically source these beautiful paintings. 

Molly lives with her sisters and other women in a communal humpy on the outskirts of a small settlement in northern Utopia.

She began painting in 2004 in a workshop with her sisters Geyla, Emily and Minnie Pwerle. Her paintings depict her dreaming, Anemangkerr, and the associated ceremonial elements (Awelye).

Anemangkerr is a large bush tomato commonly referred to as bush melon. Its seeds are discarded and the fruit eaten. It grows in northern Utopia, near Molly's home, and is favoured for its exceptional keeping qualities.
