PACINTA TURNER NAKAMARRA - Artist from Utopia region
Pacinta is an up and coming young artist, born in 1999, with a highly-pedigreed artistic background. Her language is Annatyerre. and her skin name is Nakamarra.
Pacinta is the daughter of established Indigenous artists Caroline Numina Napananka and Daniel Pula Turner, Pacinta’s great aunt is Gloria Petyarre and her father is related to the late and renowned artist Minnie Pwerel. Her mother and her elders have taught and continue to teach Pacinta to paint her cultural Dreaming stories.
Pacinta paints “My Country” and her totem Dreaming of the Wallaby, which is seen in the tracks in her artwork. The dotted lines depict the wallaby moving to high ground at night in the desert near her home. Like all Utopia art, from its beginnings and through the explosive impact of Emily Kame Kngwarreye and Minnie Pwerle, to the new work by emerging artists such as Pacinta and the Numina sisters, the art of Utopia is constantly re-inventing itself. Pacinta’s work shows a well defined sense of space
Pacinta’s paintings are shown in galleries in Queensland and in Sydney. As a truly young emerging artist, Pacinta was offered a solo exhibition and tour interstate whilst still at school. Although young, her paintings have been purchased by astute collectors and investors in Australia and overseas and her works are shown in galleries in the Northern Territory, Queensland and New South Wales. She is becoming a respected cultural representative from telling the stories of her relatives Dreamings through her artwork
