Genevieve Kemarr Loy, young member of a significant artistic family from Iylenty (Mosquito Bore), within Utopia, is the granddaughter of Nancy Petyarr. She has learnt painting from her father, Cowboy Loy Pwerl and paints her father’s country, including the story of the Bush Turkey, for which he is senior custodian. Her paintings are characterised by a beautiful and careful handling of paint, a harmonious sense of colour and great control of the delicate spidery marks that make their way across her canvas and reveal a mature grasp of colour, design, and resolved aesthetic direction.
