This is one to collect.. Minnie Pwerle’s paintings are one of the most recognized in the industry, from avid collectors to novice first time buyers she is always spotted first. Her wonderful, bold, unique, colorful, statement artwork is and will always be a strong investment simply because she will always sell in auction.. like an exquisite bottle of wine to a fine vintage car, she will never go out of style.
Minnie Pwerle was born at McDonnell Down Station in the Northern Territory.
She started painting in 1999. Since then her works have been in high demand and have found their way into prominent auction houses of Sydney and Melbourne. Minnie often travelled to Adelaide, Melbourne and Sydney for exhibitions of her art, which were always well received.
One of Minnie’s pieces was entered into the 18th National Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Telstra Award in 2001. To be selected for the Telstra Award is an enormous recognition of her work.
Her distinctive style uses linear brush-work based on the Body Painting used for important women’s ceremonies in her native country of Atnwengerrp. She paints with a rich array of colours and her work contains a compelling visual and spiritual power. All the stories that she paints convey her deep connection with the land, and knowledge of the foods that it provides.
