  • 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.

  • Top 3 recommended videos to watch if you're new to collecting aboriginal art

    September 11, 2015 1 min read

    Here is a collection of video's I recommend watching if you're interested in seeing what Utopia is like, or 'meeting' some of these remote aboriginal artists. I had a hand in making these videos during the time I worked at Mbantua Gallery in Alice Springs. They are what I call little home-made videos with love, and I enjoyed every minute of it! I hope you enjoy.

    1. Aboriginal artist Lena Pwerle painting 'Soakages'

    This is a collection of video clips of aboriginal artist Lena Pwerle painting several pieces - some in her home in Utopia and others in Mbantua Gallery's studio in Alice Springs. This video was originally created for an exhibition of Lena Pwerle and fellow Utopian Jeannie Mills works, titled "Women Leaders", a successful exhibition in 2010. It's exciting to see this video has over 22,000 views on YouTube. Learn more about Lena Pwerle's paintings.

     2.  Aboriginal artists Lucky, Lily and Michelle Lion painting with ink bottles

    Watch Aboriginal artists from Arnkawneyerr in Utopia; Lucky Morton Kngwarrey, Lily Lion Kngwarrey, Michelle Lion Kngwarrey as they paint their Dreamings. The tool they are using are ink bottles with different sized nibs.

     

    3. Boss women Jeannie Mills Pwerle and Lena Pwerle talk with Dale Jennings about finding water, women's ceremony and being Nangara (bush doctor)

    Lena Pwerle and Jeannie Mills Pwerle (yes slightly different spelling of their skin names) from Utopia talk about finding water (kwatye), women's ceremony (awelye) and being Nangara's (bush doctors). That is my voice over the top interviewing them - and enjoying the chance to interview these extraordinary women.

    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.
