    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.

    Polly Ngale

    "Anwekety Blue carries us away to the Dreaming lands with its ultramarine blue and deep magenta hues."- Senior Curator, Dale Jennings

    This ethereal artwork by Polly Ngale, who is considered to be one of the most accomplished painters to have come from Utopia, measures 120cm x 120cm and is painted with acrylics on the finest quality Belgian linen.

    Polly, an artist in her 80's, paints superimposed layers of brushwork dotting by collecting different sized brushes and daubing them onto the canvas; mixing the coloured acrylics together whilst they are still wet.

    This technique creates patterns that appear multi-dimensional and, in this painting, convey a soft and sensual sense of depth and movement. 

    Contrary to Polly's typical warm tones, the vivid palette of mystic, watery colours used in this piece were commissioned especially for something extra special.

    The painting represents the Anwekety (Conkerberry) Story where dots represent the conkerberries being swept across the Dreaming lands by prevailing wind.

    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.
