  • About the Artists

    Our vibrant and dynamic artists are from the Utopia region; a large remote area of Central Australia which, until recently, had no government funded art centre. As a result of their pioneering efforts, they have one of the strongest and richest art histories.

  • Sacha Long Petyarre - a developing artist

    October 03, 2015 2 min read

    I recently came across this old pic of Sacha Long Petyarre painting in front of Earth's Creation in 2011, a stunning back drop for her interview with King TV of Seattle. I thought I'd take the chance to tell you a little about Sacha. Since she first began as a young teenager (and a young mother), Sacha has been a keen and motivated painter, inspired by her mother's work in particular which represent wild flowers that bloom across the desert floor. They are one of our most popular styles which people tell us are because they have a soft, moving energy and because of their likeness to Gloria Petyarre's original Leaves paintings, which won her the Wynne prize in 1999. It helps that Sacha's works are some of the most affordable aboriginal paintings too - making them a great snap up for people buying gifts. So keep that in mind if you are too, you are not alone! 

    When King TV wanted to interview a Utopia artist on their visit through Central Australia, Sacha was a keen top choice. Her lineage also connects her with Emily Kame Kngwarreye who painted Earth's Creation in 1994 hence the backdrop. They spent a couple of hours filming Sacha who articulately answered their questions while painting a large Wild Flowers piece. I too answered some questions back in the gallery. It is a shame the video is no longer on their website. I would have loved to share it with you. Alas, I'll leave you with these pictures. If you would like to see more of Sacha's works please contact us and we can send you images of other works we have in stock. We may be able to commission a custom made piece from Sacha too who is always keen to give something a try!

    Laurie's works are simplistic in design, offering something more subtle for your walls.

    From Ampilatwatja, he focuses each work on a different bush medicine. We have just a few, with two pieces like this in carbon black with antique white dots on a crisp white canvas.
