"If Kngwarreye is the A-lister and Walbidi is the rising star, then Angelina Pwerle (Pull-uh) is the cult favourite - one on whom a growing number of institutions and collectors are quietly placing bets.

Her paintings, which conjure images of distant galaxies, cloud formations and geological phenomena, practically hum with energy."
