MARCIA TURNER PITJARA 

Bio

Born in 1973. Utopia, Australia 

Essentially inspired by physical painting associated to Awelyé ceremonies, her style remains very traditional but succeeds in giving a very personal touch to her works by creating visual effects with a conservation of means… Only two tints on a black background, the motives being realized with very thin , almost shivering strokes that emphasizes the optical effect ( this technique is unusual in Aboriginal Art as the bodies are generally painted with the fingers), the artists willing to reproduce these motives often use a brush that would create thicker strokes, closer to the ceremonial ones.
