Colleen Wallace Nungarrayi
Dreamtime Sisters | 32h x 32w | RK304
Not stretched or framed | Acrylic on canvas
Colleen was born on Santa Teresa Mission, approximately one hour from Alice Springs in Central Australia, in 1973 where she was raised with traditional education and ideals.
Colleen is well known for her precise dot work and use of vibrant colours. Her most popular works are her 'Dreamtime Sisters' painting which tells the story of dancing sisters (the Eastern Arrente people call these "Irrernte-arenye"). It is the role of these spirits to guard important areas of land, in particular sacred and ceremonial sites. These works are beautiful intricate dotting with bold colours that represent wild flowers and berries blossoming in the desert after a big rain.
Colleen is by far one of Utopia’s most popular artists, with her 'Dreamtime Sisters' series being purchased not only Australia-wide but internationally.
