Pacinta TURNER

View Artwork

From Utopia, Pacinta Turner’s language is Anmattyerr and her skin name is Nakamarra. Born in 1999 she is a remarkably gifted and talented young emerging artist with a highly-pedigreed artistic background. The daughter of established Indigenous artists Caroline Numina Pananka and Daniel Pula Turner, Pacinta’s great aunt is Gloria Petyarre and her father is related to the late and renowned artist Minnie Pwerel. Her mother and her elders have taught and continue to teach Pacinta to paint her stories.

Pacinta paints “My Country” and her totem dreaming of wallaby which is seen in the tracks in her artworks. The dotted lines depict the wallaby moving to high ground at night in the desert near her home. Like all Utopia art from its beginnings, through the explosive impact of Emily Kame Kngwarreye and Minnie Pwerle, to the new work by emerging artists such as Pacinta and the Numina sisters, the art of Utopa is constantly re-inventing itself. Pacinta’s works show a well- defined sense of space

Her works are shown in galleries in Queensland and in Sydney. Although she has not yet finished her schooling, Pacinta has been offered a solo exhibition and tour interstate. Although young, her paintings are being purchased by astute collectors and investors .
