The incomparable Lorna Fencer
Posted: 27 Feb 2013
Lorna Fencer belongs to an elite group of indigenous artistswho inspired and defined what has become one of the most exciting art movements of the 20th Century and beyond. Not only did she stand beside such master artists as Clifford Possum and Johnny Warangkula, but along with Emily Kame Kngwarreye, Lorna pioneered the women’s art movement, departing from the traditional iconography Aboriginal men painted to a more personal and artistic expression. Her strong personality, her energy and her independent nature were all reflected in her paintings - extremely bold, free, expressive, abstract and experimental artworks that were larger than life.
