Colleen Wallace Nungarrayi
Dreamtime Sisters | 60h x 90w | RK497
Not framed or stretched | 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 which the Eastern Arrente people call "Irrernte-arenye". It is the role of these spirits to guard important areas of land, in particular sacred and ceremonial sites.
Colleen is by far one of Utopia’s most popular artists with her Dreamtime Sisters series being purchased not only Australia wide but internationally. Given that the majority of her paintings are small in size, they are often collected and displayed in sets of two or three to give a triptych affect.
