Margaret Loy Pula Opens September 9th
MARC STRAUS is pleased to present the second solo exhibition of Indigenous artist Margaret Loy Pula, featuring a body of new work based on her distinct “Anatye” or bush potato series.
Margaret Loy Pula is a painter who belongs to the Anmatyerre tribe of Utopia in Central Australia. Winner of the 2017 prestigious Arthur Guy Memorial Prize, Pula is one of the most celebrated Aboriginal artists today. Pula hails from an incredibly distinguished artistic family. She is the daughter of well-known Aboriginal artist Kathleen Petyarre and the mother of Abie Loy Kemarre. Born in 1957, Pula came later than most to art – she has been painting for just ten years – and she is the first Indigenous artist to win the prestigious Waterhouse Natural History Art Prize in South Australia.
Exhibition is on view from September 9th to October 15, at Marc Straus Gallery New York
