  • 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.

    Bush Berries by Josepha Petrick Kemarre

    60cm x 60cm
    This painting depicts a variety of edible berries and bush flowers found in the Central Australian bush that the women used to collect for the community. One variety of berry is a mistletoe called angkwerrpme. After significant rainfall, angkwerrpme will grow and change from green to shades of yellow, red and orange before finally a blueish purple (close to black) when they fall from the stem. The square design in the centre of this painting is symbolic of a coolamon (carved wooden bowl) being used to carry the berries and flowers, as well as the ripening journey and travelling path of the food being collected and celebrated after rain.
