  • 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.

    Yam Flower by Janet Golder Kngwarreye (SOLD)

    30cm x 30cm

     

    This painting by Janet Golder Kngwarreye depicts the flowers of the atnwelarr (pencil yam).

    The atnwelarr is a native trailing herb that will cover large areas of ground after significant rain. Its luscious bright green leaves bring the bush to life. Small yellow flowers bloom and tubers (pencil yams) are found beneath the surface which are a favoured and nutritious food.

    This painting captures the untamed movement as the foliage emerges from the ground and sweeps across the desert floor.
