Motherline II presents new land and body scape works by Margaret Loy Pula and her daughter Abie Loy Kemarre depicting a complex continuity of traditional stories. Perhaps best known for her Awelye (female body designs) paintings, Abie Loy Kemarre’s work shows small, rounded squares and rectangles pieced together like a vast puzzle, many of these markings are adorned with white dots typical of Aboriginal desert painting.

Margaret Loy Pula uses a refined colour palette to depict her primary subject matter Anatye/ Bush Potato which is vital for her Anmatyerre people for both its spiritual significance and as a reliable food source. Pula’s visual language utilises fine dots, rhythmically applied in intricate webs to create expansive patterns that generate a calmness and wisdom seemingly drawn from nature.
