  • 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.

    30cm x 30cm

    Shop current artworks by Gary Bird Mpetyane

    Aremela Rockhole is a sacred site for Gary and his people. In this painting the large concentric circles in the centre represent Aremela Rockhole and the small yellow circles represent smaller rock holes nearby. Parallel lines stemming from the concentric circles represent travelling lines of the Ilkawerne people to and from Aremela Rockhole.

    Black is a significant colour in this painting. It denotes the presence of the Bush Plum Dreaming. Black dots depict bush plums that have fallen to the ground. There is a sacred Dreamtime story for this small black berry, called Ahakeye.
