  • 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.

    Conkerberry by Kate Petyarre

    60cm x 60cm

    Conkerberries (often called bush plums) are a favoured sweet blackberry. They only grow on the plant (Carissa lanceolata) for a few weeks of the year however the Ahalpere people would collect plenty of them and store them dry, soaking them in the water again before being consumed. The conkerberry tree is a tangled, spiny shrub that can grow up to 2m high. After rain fragrant white flowers bloom. It also bares medicinal properties. Like other painters in her community, Kate uses dots to represent conkerberries.
