By Gladys Kemarre



Gladys Kemarre c 1937 shares stories with her sister Ally (Ollie Kemarre , deceased, (c.1935 – c2007) that they both inherited from their grandmother, Emily Kngwarreye. Their main Dreamings are based on native plants and bush tucker species as well as design elements associated with women’s Awelye (ceremony/dancing).

Gladys’s paintings of her desert homelands reflect her intimate knowledge of the area where she was born and raised.

Artistically, Gladys Kemarre is one of the most important women on Utopia Station. She began painting in the late 1980s with the first women’s Batik Project for the Robert Holmes à Court Collection.  Works are sought after for their unique layering of dots which creates the sense of a three dimensional image.
