The Petyarre Family

Indigenu is very proud to be chosen by the Petyarre Family to be an avenue for their work. They are very popular and fast selling pieces.

Anna's superb works reflecting the sand hills or Tali of her lands with the featuring of waterholes highlighted by travel markings and often featuring the waterhole that the Petyarre family drink at.

Joy portrays the importance and beauty of the yam seeds in her paintings - they are very snake skin in design and subtly featuring a host of different colours. Some like Bernadine's paintings are opalescent and gleam in the sunlight.

Mary uses her hill land mark as her principle motif in gold, red and white on black and executed with preciseness. This  hill with its eroded featues are what she uses as her compass when travelling her lands.

Stephen has been painting for Indigenu since it opened its doors in 2010 and a strong friendship has been formed. He brings stories unique to men to his art work - bold and strong. His auntie was Emily Kame Kgnwarreye and he watched her and his sisters paint and brings these experiences to his paintings

Of course this post would not be complete by mentioning Stephen's partner Bernadine who is also a superb painter along with those gorgeous children, Tamika and Simeon.

Thank You, I appreciate your wonderful work, your culture and your connection to Indigenu, it's been fun
