Biography

Abie Loy Kemarre was born in 1972 on the Utopia homelands, 270 kms north east of Alice Springs in Central Australia. Her language is Eastern Anmatyerre and her ancestral country is Iylenty, also called Mosquito Bore. Abie Loy began painting in 1994 alongside her grandmother, esteemed senior Utopia Aboriginal artist Kathleen Petyarre.

Abie Loy established her reputation amongst leading Australian aboriginal artists painting the detailed and finely dotted Bush Hen Dreaming, the story that she inherited from her Grandfather. These paintings, with their fixed structure overlaid with a floating field of tonally coloured dots, are classic Utopia artworks. From 2004 Abie Loy began working on paintings related to Sandhill and Body painting designs. These works are bolder and more open than the earlier works, often with strong linear structures.

Abie Loy Kemarre has exhibited widely and has been a finalist in the Telstra NAATSIA art awards in 1997 and 2001. Her first exhibition at Japingka Gallery was held in 1997.
