Biography

Abie Loy Kemarre was born in Utopia in 1972. This vast region in Central Australia is the territory of people such as the Anmatyerre, the Eastern Anmatyerre et the Alyawarre. Situated in the center of Australia, about 240 kilometers Nort-East of Mparntwe (Alice Springs), in the Northern Territory, the Utopia region is a desert of more than 3000 square kilometers.

There are bout 20 towns in the region, most of them on the Sandover river and on the road that crosses the territory. These villages are the home of large families. These populations have kept their traditional connection with the land and with their culture.

Abie Loy Kemarre started painting in 1994, at the advices of her grandmother, the famous aboriginal painter Kathleen Petyarre, who guided her during her first attempts. These first attempts were inspired by ?dreams? of which she is the spiritual guardian, especially the Bush Hen Dreaming.

Abie Loy has built her own style very quickly, and that explains her remarkable work, her success, her numerous solo and collective shows, at first in Asutralia, starting in 1997 (Perth, Brisbane, Adélaïde, Melbourne or Sydney), but also in the US (Miami, 2003), Indonesia or Europe (Germany, Spain, France). Her works are part of numerous private and public collections in Australia.
