ANNA PRICE PITJARA

Anna Price Petyarreis an Anmatyerre woman from the Boundary Bore area of the former Utopia Station, northeast of Alice Springs. She is the daughter of the late Glory Ngarla and niece to the late Emily Kame Kngwarreye. Anna initially painted Yam Seed Dreaming. She n a colourful expression of the songs and stories associated with her plant totem, the Bush Yam, and its seeds. The Bush Yam has been a staple food and water source for the Anmatyerre people for countless years and the seeds that form and scatter from the plant are ground up to make flour for the damper. During the ceremony, it is Anna's duty to pay homage to the yam seeds and give thanks for their
abundance and regenerative qualities.
By painting the tempo of a ceremonial song, Anna expresses her connection to her plant totem in a permanent medium. Both versatile and creative, artist Anna has changed her painting style several times over the last decade and more recently she has depicted ancestral country, with fine rows of dots mapping sandhills and bush country, river flood plains and sometimes waterholes and ceremonial sites. Anna
Petyarre is famous for her artistic attention to detail in the complex and interwoven, finely dotted designs that she carefully composes. Her representation of Anmatyerre culture, country and its ceremonial sites at Boundary Bore.
