Margaret Bloomfield

Margaret Bloomfield is related by marriage to the Young family who has been deeply involved at Keringke Arts since its inception in 1989, and is also the granddaughter of Billy Benn, a well-known landscape artist from Atitjere (Harts Range). Originally from Atitjere, Margaret moved to Ltyentye Apurte (Santa Teresa) in 2002, and began watching and learning from Mary and Evelyn Young. She soon discovered her own passion for painting where she has developed a distinctive style.

Artist statement

The artists of Keringke Arts use pattern, colour, shape and design to create vibrant paintings that depict sense of Country, culture and self. Various painters have developed this style of painting at Keringke Arts over a twenty-year period, notable for intricate detail and high colour. The shapes and designs may have features common to ancient rock art and petroglyph designs found throughout Eastern Arrernte country. Other motifs reflect sand and body painting designs. Still others may reflect the stories and songs recounting the adventures of the ancestors who first travelled across the vast land making the earth as we know it today. In its contemporary form these designs on the canvas may not be attributed to any particular thing, holding the energy and vitality of the artist’s particular creative experience.
