Artwork by Gloria Petyarre

I saw some of her artwork in a cafe while in Coffs Harbour earlier this year, and then again at the Art Gallery of NSW (as an entry in the Wynne Prize for landscape painting). I love her intricate patterns of leaves. The patterns in second painting remind me of a spiders web.
