Barbara Weir


Barbara Weir was born circa 1940 at what was formerly known as Bundy Station in the Utopia region. Her country is Atnwengerrp and her language is Anmatyerre and Alyawarr.

Barbara’s dreamings include ‘Bush Berry’, ‘My Mothers Country’, ‘Awelye’ and her famous ‘Grass Seed’ dreaming. Barbara’s paintings have been exhibited extensively throughout Australia and the world, including Japan, America and Europe.

She is a well documented artist featured in numerous publications and in 2004 was chosen by the Australian Tourist Commission to appear in an advertisement titled ‘Barbara Weir’s Australia”.

Barbara is a versatile and passionate artist whose love for the country is reflected in each canvas she paints. She is highly skilled in the use of dot work shown in her depictions of ‘My Mothers Country’, and is ingenious in her use of lines and texture as shown in ‘Grass Seed’ dreamings.

DACOU regards Barbara Weir as one of Utopia’s premier artists and highly recommends one of her paintings to be included in any art lover’s collection.
