Body Line showcases artworks encompassing twenty paintings and three silk batik works. This exhibition explores relationships with ancestors and tradition through ceremonial use of motifs and designs. From the exuberant colours of Utopia artists Emily Pwerle and Minnie Pwerle to more subdued and earthly tones used by Tiwi artist Pedro Womaeamirri, intricate linework is key to the practice of ceremonial body painting, and its application to fine art painting.
