Annie Pitjara Hunter


Annie Pitjara (also known as Petyarre) Hunter, sister to artists Susan, Jessie and Sandy Pitjara Hunter is becoming well known for the fine execution of her interpretation of Women's Business. Like her sisters Annie is concerned with Awelye (Body Paint) and all it symbolises during the deeply spiritual women's ceremonies.  Annie also paints Bush Tucker and Bush Plum (Arnwekety) which is her dreaming. Born on MacDonald Downs in 1964 to Johnny Ngwarrai Hunter and Molly Bula Hunter, Annie now lives at Irrultja, Utopia with her sisters.  

Over the last few years Annie has participated in several group exhibitions throughout Australia.  Annie’s work has been collected since the beginning of the Utopia art movement when batik was first introduced to the women in 1977. Her batik was selected for Utopia- A Picture Story an exhibition from the Holmes a Court Collection which toured extensively nationally and overseas.  Her paintings were also featured in the significant exhibition “Utopia Women’s Paintings, the First Works on Canvas, A Summer Project” (1988-89). Annie Pitjara Hunter’s work is represented at the National Gallery of Australia, Canberra and in the Holmes a Court collection in Perth.
