  • 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.

    Dora paints 'My Mother's Country' using designs inspired by her mother, Minnie Pwerle's, paintings who painted elements of Atnwengerrp country.

    Linear motifs represent Atnwengerrp women’s ceremonial body paint, small circles represent anemangkerr (a small and sacred bush melon) and concentric circles represent waterholes on Atnwengerrp country.

    Yes. Minnie Pwerle was Dora's mother.
