  • 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.

    Pencil Yam by Delvine Petyarre (SOLD)

    30cm x 30cm

    This painting represents 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. Delvine's works capture the untamed movement as the atnwelarr emerges from the ground and sweeps across the desert floor.

    In the right conditions, small yellow flowers will bloom and tubers (pencil yams) will be found beneath the surface which are a delicious and once important food source.
