  • 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.

    Alhepalh by Hazel Morton Kngwarreye (SOLD)

    30cm x 30cm

    The designs in this painting are inspired by the Alhepalh (Acacia dictyophleba), a sparsely branched shrub that is found abundantly near Hazel’s home in the Utopia region in Central Australia. Alhepalh produces small soft coated brown seeds that the women would once collect, grind into a paste and cook into damper (bread) making it a most important food source. This practice however is not habitual now due to ready made bread. 

    “Alhepalh-penh ntang inem athaynteyew”
    The seeds from the alhepalh are collected so that they can be ground up.

    Depending on the size of the shrub, its trunk can also be used to fashion into spears and digging sticks and was traditionally an important trade object. Alhepalh also has medicinal properties and produces small fragrant flowers.
