  • 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.

    Josie's paintings depict the Bush Plum Dreaming. There are many little black plum-like berries in the Central Australian bush, but this particular berry is actually a mistletoe (called angkwerrpme) and one of just a few varieties that have edible berries making it an important food source.

    Her paintings explore the stages of these berries through maturity.

    After significant rainfall the desert transforms from an analogous landscape to a panorama of abundant colour and vegetation.

    The sweet edible angkwerrpme berries change from green to shades of yellow, red and orange before finally a blue-ish purple (close to black) when it falls from the stem and is collected in bulk.

    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.
