Untitled Panel

Emily's 'Utopia' panels (1996) were painted in the year of her death and were described by the artist herself as her last 'important big picture'.  These panels (18 in total) represent Emily’s Utopia – her Country of Alhalkere – the traditional home of her people.  The strong, horizontal black lines, tough, and assertive map the body painting used in the Aweleye ceremony.  These are remarkable works for a woman in her eighties.
