About

Ivy Pareroultja is one of the leaders in a new generation of artists continuing the legacy of the renowned Hermannsburg school of watercolour painters. Ivy is the daughter of Edwin Pareroultja, a contemporary of Albert Namatjira's and a significant artist in his own right. Significantly, Edwin Pareroultja's painting 'Amulda Gorge' c1947 was the first work by an Aboriginal artist purchased for the Gallery's collection. Edwin, along with his brothers, Otto and Reuben, was known for his use of brilliant colour, graphic forms and strong patternation.

In recent years Ivy has mastered the skills inherited from her father to produce striking watercolours through the Ngurratjuta Iltja Ntjarra: Many Hands Art Centre. This art centre was established in 2003 to foster the Western Arrernte descendents of the Hermannsburg school of painters and can be credited with a revival of their style of painting in recent years. Ivy has been at the forefront of this movement and following her first exhibition in 2003 has achieved great success.
