In this beautiful rendition of her Body Painting artwork, Abie creates in her work “Awelye”, the ceremonial designs that custodial women use in “women’s business”. These women dreamtime stories are passed down through the female line during which the women paint their bodies in ochres, singing and dancing. Abie uses a muted colour palette that gives a subtle strength to this repetition of motif design. The almost monochromatic feel of this work is a beautifully understated, yet makes a statement, that is even more intriguing when you know that this is Abie’s dreaming “Aweleye”.
