Biographie

Regina Wilson est née vers 1945, elle est un membre fondateur de la communauté de Peppimenarti près de Darwin (groupe linguistique Ngangikurrungurr) et a joué un rôle clé dans la création du Durrmu Arts Art Center à Peppimenarti en 2007. Wilson est un tisserand expérimenté qui a été enseigné par sa grand-mère maternelle. Elle a commencé à peindre dans les années 1990, continuant comme une belle tisserande de l’unique ficelle warrgarri (sacs dilly) et d’autres tissages qu’elle a adaptés à la technique de ses peintures à la ligne fine.

Les peintures de Wilson ont été parmi les premières dans l’art aborigène à représenter l’art du tissage en tant qu’art contemporain. Les plus représentatifs de ses styles sont ceux basés sur le point et le tissage du syaw (filet de poisson) – le filet utilisé pour cueillir le poisson, les crevettes et autres fruits de mer fabriqués à partir de la vigne.

Ses peintures ont été incluses dans de nombreuses expositions collectives dans des institutions artistiques publiques et privées, y compris
la 3ème Biennale d’Art de Moscou, le Prix Wynne (2008 et 2009)

Son travail a été inclus dans de nombreuses expositions de groupe importantes, dont Dreaming its Way: les femmes peintres autochtones australiennes au Musée national des femmes dans les arts, Washington DC (2006). Elle a remporté le prix de peinture au prix national 2003 Telstra National Aboriginal et Torres Strait Islander.
