  • 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.

    Body Paint by Gloria Petyarre (SOLD)

    90cm x 90cm

    Gloria is one of Australia's most accomplished and sought after Aboriginal artists. While she is most recognized for her Leaves depictions, it all started for her with Awelye - her ceremonial body paint designs.

    Like her sisters and other women who gathered together for a tutorial in painting in the 1980's, Gloria instinctively knew what she was going to paint; body paint. "Nobody told me what to do, I been doing it myself."  And she often tells how it is her treasured subject to paint.

    Gloria doesn’t partake in a ceremony much nowadays but remembers it being a happy, social time full of singing and teaching.

    These two panels were commissioned in the grey on black for a 'bold-abstract meets quiet-sophistication' look.
