Cora Peltherre Lynch
Cora is the daughter of well-known artist Norbett Kngwarreye Lynch (dec) and granddaughter of the famous artist Wenten Rubunja (dec). A proud Arrernte and Yankunytjatjara woman from Alice Springs, Central Australia, Cora is now based in Perth, Western Australia.
Her iconic Traditional works depict how Aboriginal people connected and still connect to their lands and country spiritually, emotionally and physically, and is inspired by Dream-time stories, the lore, her culture and her people. Privileged to have these stories handed down to her from her elders, she is proud to continue her family's legacy; THE CORKWOOD DREAMING COLLECTION - NGWARLE UNTYE. She also has a love for Contemporary and Abstract designs, as well as unique and innovative crafts and jewellery.
Cora emerged as an artist at the 2019 annual WA Revealed exhibition, hosted at the historical Fremantle Art Centre, with her record-breaking emerging artist exhibition. She has also attended the Blak Markets that coincide with the annual National Indigenous Art Fair in Sydney.
"I am a passionate artist and story teller. The songlines and dreaming’s depicted in my Traditional art is traditional cultural knowledge, thousands of years strong. I intend to continue sharing my culture through visual arts to keep my culture strong for future generations both nationally and worldwide"
