This highly talented family of women present their dreamings and the legacy of their famous mother, grandmother and great-grandmother Minnie Pwerle. Minnie was one of Australia’s top female contemporary Indigenous artists. Her paintings are loved for being so modern in style and yet so traditional and raw in subject. Minnie’s art is in major public collections such as the National Gallery of Australia in Canberra, Art Gallery of NSW, and Art Gallery of South Australia and National Gallery of Victoria.

NORPA PRESENTS

Barbara, Minnie’s daughter, is today one of Australia’s most sought-after contemporary Indigenous artists. Inspired by a small grass found in Utopia called Lyaw or Munyeroo, Barbara’s Grass Seed paintings consist of a series of small brush strokes that overlap and weave to create a swaying effect. It is an energetic style exclusive to Barbara. grant@ninbella.com | www.ninbella.com 19a Byron Street, Bangalow 02 6687 1936
