Jessie Pitjara Hunter was born in 1957 at MacDonald Downs and is the sister of renowned artists Sandy, Annie and Susan Pitjara Hunter. Her work has been collected by many significant public and private galleries and institutions.
Jessie’s Dreaming is Awelye (Body Paint).
Jessie was involved in the Utopia Women’s Batik Group. Her work is represented in ‘A Picture Story’, a project initiated by CAAMA in the late 80’s. She also began painting on canvas in the late 80’s and has been involved in many group exhibitions including the Robert Holmes à Court touring exhibition of silk batiks.
This piece was painted in 2023 and is 208cm x 61cm in size. This artwork is currently unstretched and signed by artist.
In her paintings, she symbolizes all that is associated with Awelye – the decorated torsos of the women, the women’s ceremonial sites or dreaming places where women are gathered and the other representations of the ceremony – digging and music sticks, coolamons and feather adornments. Her paintings depict different body designs which are painted on the women’s breasts, arms and shoulders. She paints these designs from an aerial perspective.
All the artwork provided is done on with highest quality linen canvas, acrylic paints, oils and brushes ensuring the longevity of each piece of work.
