Sacha Petyarre is a young mother who approached Mbantua Gallery during a painting trip to the Utopia Region in 2005, wanting painting materials. After this time, she was enthusiastic to have joined the other women in such a community affair, full of inspiration.
Sacha is the daughter of artist Marcia Turner and younger sister to Rosabella who also paint for Mbantua Gallery. Sacha and Rosabella both paint the Dreamtime story of the Arnkerrthe, which has been passed down from their father’s country, Atnangkere. Arnkerrthe travelled over Sacha’s land creating all of the people, sacred sites, songs and other Dreamtime stories. In its neck it holds a sac of ochre that Sacha and her people use for ceremonies.Displaying 750 of 1440 characters.
