Margaret Loy Pula features in an exhibition currently showing at the Hudson Valley Centre for Contemporary Art (HVCCA) in the United States.
'Between I & Thou’ is an exhibition which includes artists from many different areas of the globe and explores interconnections between the personal, cultural, religious and national.
The works reflect the human need to tell the story of self and society, offering a rich conversation about the sameness and differentness among us.
There is an emphasis on the inclusion of senior artists whose works cogently reflect lives lived across significant changes in history.
'Between I & Thou’ celebrates diversity.
'Anatye (Bush Potato)
Hailing from Utopia in Central Australia Margaret Loy Pula continues a legacy that dates back through millennia. Painting traditional stories handed down from her father she depicts her homelands, bush foods and ceremonial designs using a series of finely detailed dots.
Pula paints her culture and her father’s dreaming. Her main story is “Anatye” or Bush Potato dreaming. The painting portrays a plant that is important food source to the Anmatyerre people. Margaret has been exposed to art for most of her life having grown up in the small community where she still resides.
