Protty is a senior law woman who is recognised as a guardian of knowledge and cultural Tjukurrpa songs. Her artistic practice is very diverse, being held in high esteem for her carving, weaving and painting. Her use of concentrated colour, with a very controlled palette makes her compositions quite unique. We are pleased to have a series of works that denote the trees local to her home.
Protty has enjoyed a long career in Australia exhibiting work in a broad range of environments, and recently showcased in Revealed 2020: WA Aboriginal Artists. JGM Gallery is Protty's first opportunity of an international audience and we look forward to working with her. Protty's works have been exhibited widely and are part of the Australian National University Collection as well as being collected globally.
