Biography
Minnie was born around 1910 near the cattle station of Utopia in Northern Territory. She belongs to the Anmatyerre and Alyawarr language groups. She is the mother of acclaimed artist Barbara Weir. Like many other Utopia women artists, Minnie participated in the batik project which was introduced to the community in 1977. Although painting started in the late 1980s in her community, Minnie started to paint on canvas only in 1999, while in her late eighties and after many years of ceremonial body painting. Together with her good friend Emily Kame Kngwarreye Minnie revolutionized Aboriginal Art by painting in a radically different manner than their fellow artists from the Western Desert. Minnie's style was spontaneous, free, and embraced bold and vibrant colours. Her paintings include two main design themes. The first consists of free-flowing and parallel lines in a pendulous outline, depicting the designs used in women's ceremonies, or Awelye. The second are circular shapes, used to represent bush tomato, bush melon, and wild desert orange. Her spiritual connection to the land is unmistakable in all her paintings. Minnie continued to paint until she died in March 2006.
