    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.

  • NOW ON: Soakages Sequel Exhibition : 16th Sept - 12 Nov 2016

    September 16, 2016 1 min read

     

    Warm desert hues and watery undertones dominate the new collection  of Lena Pwerle's work in Soakages Sequel

    Soakages overlap on one another as if they do beneath the ground, creating unexpected mixes of colours and fluidity that bring an edge to Lena's artwork. 

    Each exhibition artwork has been chosen selectively to show off Lena Pwerle's individuality.

    The exhibition is inspired by Lena's largest work ever completed, Big Soakage Dreaming, measuring a hefty 360cm x 180cm.
    The piece pays homage to a large soakage in Alhalpere country which Lena frequented growing up. It still contains water.

    "Long time ago we been get kwaty water under the caves. Anaty, Tyape Antyematy...we been get them too, long time ago.

    Big rock near Apungalingum; proper big one [soakage] there. We get billy can [with water] and come back. And bush potato. Near that hill at Apungalingum. Still kwaty there, under the caves in the hill."

    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.
