Genevieve Loy is a young artist from the Utopia region. She is the granddaughter of Nancy Petyarre and has learnt painting from her father, Cowboy Loy Pwerl. Like Cowboy, she paints the Bush Turkey Dreaming, on one level showing the tracks the bush turkey makes as it searches for seeds and other “tucker” and makes its way to the waterhole. On a more complex cultural level, her paintings are about women’s ceremonies. Genevieve’s paintings are characterised by a beautiful and careful handling of paint; a harmonious sense of colour; and great control of the delicate spidery marks that make their way across her canvas.

‘Some people think Oh! Only dot painting really has meaning. Landscape is only pretty coloured rocks and trees. We only want dot paintings.
But these hills have meaning and we have stories too, the landscape artists. We also talk about where the different Dreamings come from, and where they meet up and so on.
We have two ways of painting: sand painting and landscapes. For us they both have the same Dreaming story. The landscape painting we do, it shows the country. We don’t just paint anything, that’s not our way. We are inspired by the country and the Dreaming as we paint.’
