Further Information

Genevieve Loy is a young artist from the Utopia region. She is the granddaughter of Nancy Petyarr and has learnt painting from her father, Cowboy Loy Pwerl. Like Cowboy, she paints the Bush Turkey Story. On a superficial level her paintings depict the tracks the bush turkey makes as it searches for seeds and other ?tucker? and makes its way to the waterhole. Genevieve?s 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.
