Rene and Maureen Nelson

Our Culture

Added by Desart Inc

Description Mother Rene and daughter Maureen are both passionate artists working at Minyma Kutjara Arts. Rene was one of the founding members of Irrunytju Artists. Her work draws on her extensive knowledge of Country and the important rock holes around her place of birth. A skilled bush woman Rene incorporates wood carving (punu), weaving with tjanpi (grass) and beadwork into a contemporary art practice.

Working in sculpture and on canvas, Maureen uses a strong, vibrant colour pallet to paint the landscapes of Pukurra, the Tali (sandhill) Country of her father and grandfather. Developing her own distinct painting style, Nelsons’ work is bold and colourful, depicting these significant landmarks.
