  • 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.

    Soakage by April Haines (SOLD)

    30cm x 30cm

    Circular designs in this painting by April Haines represent soakages (or waterholes) that are spread throughout her country. Many of these soakages had plenty of water in them long ago and with their intimate knowledge of the land, April’s people knew how and where to find them in their harsh desert environment.
