Gloria Tamerre Petyarre

December 8, 2009


(Bush Medicine Dreaming by Gloria Petyarre –

I went to a friends house yesterday for the first time and was so excited to see that she had a painting by one of my favourite artists in her entry foyer! Gloria Petyarre is an acclaimed Indigenous artist (one of 7 sisters who are all artists!) and her paintings are in many of the major art galleries in Australia. I used to work in an office filled with fantastic artwork – the director was an avid art collector with no space left on his walls at home! Amongst other pieces we had a very large grey/black/white monocrome painting by Gloria Petyarre in our boardroom very similar to the one above, I loved how everyone who saw the painting had a different idea of what the brushstrokes could be! I’m also pretty sure that the painting above the cot in Mark Tuckey’s daughter chilli’s bedroom is also by Petyarre…(see image below)


The Central Art store has a Christmas catalogue sale with 20% off many beautiful artworks including some large pieces by Gloria Petyarre and also some work by her sisters.
