GREENY PURVIS PETYARRE: A True Utopian Gentleman

"...a very high proportion [of his paintings] are rendered with the greatest integrity and intimate detail. The best of these are a pleasure to behold, and a privilege to possess."

Greeny Purvis Petyarre was a true Utopian gentleman

Greeny Purvis Petyarre was an elder of Alhalkere country, holding ownership of Dreaming stories and ceremonies. He had a deep respect and bond with his land and country and lived a long life at Bounday Bore Outstation, situated in Alhalkere country in the Utopia region.

Lost Legends Exhibition Now Open

Lost Legends showcases the extraordinary works of three Utopia Aboriginal artists, now passed, described as 'the founders of Utopia art' and among Aboriginal art's most respected leaders during the Aboriginal art boom of the 1990's.

Today there are very few paintings by these artists available for sale and they are becoming increasingly difficult to source. For this exhibition, we were challenged with this very notion and now proudly present eighteen exquisite, timeless and 'lost' artworks by Ada, Nancy and Greeny Petyarre.

Spirits of the Desert: A Behind the Scenes Picture Story

Spirits of the Desert came together after extensive collaboration with both artists Colleen Wallace and Angelina Ngale who were featured in the Nov-Jan exhibition.

While the artists spent several months working on the exhibition artworks, much of our preparation and research was spent over a number of years - given that travel to the artists' homes are some 200 km into the desert northeast of Alice Springs in Central Australia; the nearest township. 

Angelina Ngale speaks very little English, and in order to gain insight into her story called Atham-areny, we needed to spend a lot more time with her.
