Minnie Pwerle
Minnie Pwerle was born in the Utopia region in approximately 1922. Her country is Atnwengerrp and her language is Anmatyerre and Alyawarr. She passed away on March 18, 2006.

Minnie's main dreamings are "Awelye-Atnwengerrp", "Bush Melon" and "Bush Melon Seed". These convey her love and respect for the land and the food it provides to the people. These bold, brave, assured paintings depict traditional body designs and bush melons which are part of Pwerles intimate and intuitive knowledge of the life around her. Her love and delight in painting is translated in the use of brilliant colours - vibrant reds, electric blues and shocking pinks mix to create superbly confident contemporary tableaux that have been compared to Tony Tuckson for their free-flowing linear quality, or to the Fauves for their love of and experimentation with colour.
