Barbara Weir Obituary, Death – Barbara Weir. The Aboriginal Art Association of Australia shared the unfortunate news on Tuesday, the 3rd of January, that our esteemed Patron Kumantjayi (Barbara) Weir had passed away. This was a great loss for our organization. This announcement was made with a heavy heart because she had passed away on the same day as the announcement. This was due to the fact that her passing coincided with the making of the announcement. Throughout the length of her successful career as a painter, she was regarded as one of the most collectible Indigenous artists in Australia. This reputation lasted for the entirety of her career.
This acknowledgment is due to the high caliber of work that she has consistently produced. Her paintings of grasses became famous because of the sophisticated understatement and hypnotic rhythm that they possessed. Kumantjayi Weir was a sweet and attractive old lady who frequently reminisced about her formative years in Utopia, which she had spent there during her time as a resident of Utopia. At this point in history, Kumantjayi Weir was a citizen of the utopian state of Utopia. She was a stalwart advocate for the independent artistic aspirations of others in addition to the Aboriginal art community as a whole.
Our deepest condolences go out to her family, which includes her wonderful children and grandchildren who share her passion for Australian Aboriginal art. Her children and grandchildren will be in our thoughts and prayers during this difficult time. Her children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren all share a deep appreciation for the traditions of the Aboriginal people of Australia.
