Interesting contemporary work by artist MYRA AH CHEE (1931-), featuring not only the dot style that is most commonly seen in Australian aboriginal art, but also silhouetted or painted grubs, echidna, goanna lizards, ants, ticks---the insects and small animals of the central desert region. The artist was born in 1931 to a large family in Oodnadotta, but only within the last twenty years has she become active in producing art. She works in painting, linocut, batik, silk screen and pottery. After schooling in Adelaide, she moved to Alice Springs, the center of much of the aboriginal art scene in recent decades. Her works are offered through the Many Hands Art Centre. This work, 16 1/2" by 19" as simply framed in black laminate, bears a typed label on the reverse referencing Pertame Arts, (of South Aranda), and their reference number. Condition is excellent; the work framed behind glass.
