Charmaine Pwerle: Storylines
Click orange artwork title to see pricing or email us here
Charmaine’s recent artworks are a colourful display of movement and complexity. Navigating the intersection of two cultures due to an upbringing between the remote Utopia community and urban Adelaide, the artists lyrical brushwork is reminiscent of the distinctive styles of her grandmother, Minnie Pwerle. Through Charmaine’s exploration of Awelye (traditional body paint worn during women's ceremonies), the visual connection serves as both a conduit for cultural transmission and a reflection of her deep ties to her heritage.
