  • 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 Plum at Aremela Rockhole by June Bird Ngale (SOLD)

    30cm x 30cm

    Also known as the native currant or citrus, this particular bush plum belongs to the Canthium attenuatum which grows about 3m high. It produces small white flowers, deep green citrus-like leaves and plums, called ahakeye in June's language, which are black when ripe and very small. The plums are favoured for their sweet taste and can be reconstituted in water if dry.

    In this painting, concentric circles represent Aremela Rockhole which is a sacred site on June’s country, Ilkawerne. Black dotwork represents the bush plums which have fallen to the ground nearby.
