Creating Dark and Moody Spaces

Creating Dark and Moody Spaces

May 23, 2017

If you're the kind of person who loves a drizzly afternoon, sitting by the window with a camomile tea (or other hot beverage), with a good book, listening to sweet beats, or just watching the rain hit the glass, then you'll know the inspiration and energy that can come from a dark and moody space. 

Adding dark colours and textures to rooms, whether large or small, can create a cosy space you just want to hunker down in and never leave!

Lost Legends Exhibition Now Open

Lost Legends Exhibition Now Open

February 03, 2017

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: A Behind the Scenes Picture Story

January 16, 2017

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.
