Article about Katie in the Mercury

KATIE PETYARRE MORGAN
b. circa 1955

Katie Petyarre Morgan is an emerging Aboriginal artist living in Irrultja, Utopia.

Her country is Ingkwelaye (Kurrajong Bore) and her language is Alyawarre.  She participated in the batik projects of the 1980s and has been involved in Awelye (Women’s Ceremonies) from an early age. In 2006 Katie began painting on canvas under the guidance of her aunties and particularly her cousin Barbara Weir who encouraged Katie to develop her individual style.

Katie mostly paints her Bush Orange Dreaming or Wild Orange and sometimes her Kangaroo Dreaming.  Her compositions of   intricate and varied dots represent the Bush Orange plant, its flowers and fruits, from an aerial perspective.  These beautiful and organic, cosmic-like creations demonstrate Katie’s spiritual connection with her culture and country. Her meticulous dot work creates a sophisticated effect of metamorphic growth. 

Her sister Janie Petyarre Morgan is also an artist and similarly participated in the batik projects. Their father is Wallaby Kngwarreye Morgan & their mother was Lena Pwerle.  They are close to their aunt and stepmother, the artist Lizzie Pwerle and her family.
