Artist Profile

Ally Kemarre

Born: c. 1930's

Deceased: 2007

Language Group: Anmatyerre

Country: Ahalpere, Utopia Region, North East of Alice Springs

Medium: Acrylic on Canvas and Linen, Batik on Silk

Subjects: Anwekety (Conkerbery), Awelye (Women's Ceremony and Body Paint Design)

Ally began painting during the CAAMA - A Summer Project of 1988/89 when acrylic painting was introduced to her home region of Utopia. Though far from prolific, Ally steadily painted up until her death in 2007. Her simplistic paintings reflected the Anwekety, small black conkerberries that grow after good rain. They are found abundantly in certain areas of Utopia, particularly where she called home.

Ally lived in a family community where many members were artists; primarily painting with some sculpture. Some of these family members include Glady Kemarre, Angelina Pwerle and Polly and Kathleen Ngale whom all paint for Mbantua Gallery. With her art, Ally tried to teach the wider world about her paintings and the Anwekety that features in them.

Description

Ally's painting reflects design elements associated with the Bush Plum Dreaming from Alhalkere country.

The different colours in these paintings are often influenced by seasonal variations including the changes in the fruit ripening. The first bush plum of the dreamings grew and bore fruit and dropped more seeds. Many winds blew the seeds all over the dreaming lands.
