Sourcing Utopia artwork is always an adventure, and comes with many challenges. One of which is the travel.
It is located in a remote area of Central Australia with mostly dirt roads that are unmarked and ungraded. Communities are situated 30-60 min drives apart.
Sometimes we call the expansive and remote Utopia region in Central Australia our studio.
This is where we go to work with the artists living there.
Their studios can be anything from porches to empty living rooms, under the shelter of a dedicated tree (with boxes of paints and rolls of canvas shelved in the tree branches) or within the environmental protection of a humpy.
