‘Abie Loy Kemarre has emerged as the star of the third generation of Utopia women painters, an inheritance founded on the art of Emily Kame Kngwarreye and Kathleen Petyarre, Abie’s grandmother. In Abie’s art, the signs and symbols associated with her people’s ancient culture and ceremonies have found new form. Her fine dotting and lines are ephemeral traces and conscious linkages all in one. And the optics at work in her paintings transmit the power of the sacred. Understanding her innovation and embrace of abstraction and colour is the key to unlocking the cultural depth and significance within her wonderfully dynamic and captivating work.’ Jane Raffan COLLECTIONS •Musée des Confluences, Lyon, France / The Metropolitan Museum, New York, États-Unis / Bridgestone Museum of Art, Tokyo, Japon / Seattle Art Museum, Seattle, États-Unis / The Art Gallery of South Australia, Australie / The National Gallery of Victoria, Victoria, Australie / The Levi-Kaplan Collection, Seattle, États-Unis, etc. A bilingual monographical catalogue on Abie Loy Kemarre's recent paintings has been published by Editions Arts d'Australie • Stéphane Jacob, Paris
