Kathleen Petyarre presents a stunning full colour retrospective of Petyarreʼs work to date. The framing essay by Christine Nicholls offers an account of Kathleenʼs life based on conversations with the artist over a period of years, and reflects the significance that the artist attributes to the episodes and events in her life that have impacted on her work.--From publisher description.
