  • 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.

  • Deteriorating health for prestigious artist. No longer able to paint.

    Kathleen Ngale portrait
    Sadly one of our artists health is deteriorating and we feel it necessary to tell you as she has been a pre-eminent artist for some time and is now unable to paint.
    Kathleen Ngale, in her mid 80's, is no longer able to see. On a recent trip to her homelands we met with Kathleen who told us. It was just over a year ago that her aging was the subject of an ABC article.
    Painting has been a huge part of Kathleen's life and has allowed her to bring considerable money to her community. In 2017 she was ranked number 21 on the Australian Indigenous Art Market for auction sales that year.
    Kathleen Ngale sits in wheelchair unable to see
    Kathleen allowed us to take some pictures of her in her wheelchair. We actually have a beautiful article we will share with you soon on our visit with her and her husband Motorbike Paddy.
    In the meantime, please be aware.
    Utopia Lane has not worked directly with Kathleen for several years and have only sought her works from reputable sources pre-2017.
    Please also know that 5% of the sale value of any works sold over $1000 go to the artist as part of Australia's artist resale royalty scheme. Everything helps.

    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.
