Further Information

As the daughter of Cowboy Loy Pwerl, who is the senior custodian of Arwengerrp, Genevieve, like her father, paints the Bush Turkey Dreaming story. Genevieve is one of the most exciting, naturally gifted and promising young artists to emerge recently from Utopia. Her works already show an innate and mature grasp of colour, design, and resolved aesthetic direction.

Her Bush Turkey Dreaming paintings combine traditional meticulous dots and elegant wisps, creating vibrant, pulsating, and richly textured surfaces. Though reminiscent of her father’s style, Genevieve has carved out her own unique and independently inspired works. Her paintings often depict the tracks the bush turkey makes as it searches for seeds and other tucker, making its way between its nesting place and various waterholes. On a more complex cultural level, her work is about ceremonies of the Anmatyerr people and is a significant depiction of the relationship between Genevieve and her land at Iylenty (Mosquito Bore), Utopia, Central Australia.
