Body Paint by Gloria Petyarre (SOLD)

90cm x 90cm

Ethically sourced and 100% original

Gloria is one of Australia's most accomplished and sought after Aboriginal artists. While she is most recognized for her Leaves depictions, it all started for her with Awelye - her ceremonial body paint designs.

Like her sisters and other women who gathered together for a tutorial in painting in the 1980's, Gloria instinctively knew what she was going to paint; body paint. "Nobody told me what to do, I been doing it myself."  And she often tells how it is her treasured subject to paint.

Gloria doesn’t partake in a ceremony much nowadays but remembers it being a happy, social time full of singing and teaching.

These two panels were commissioned in the grey on black for a 'bold-abstract meets quiet-sophistication' look.
