  • 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.

    Spinifex by Joanna Kunoth (SOLD)

    30cm x 30cm

    Spinifex has traditionally had many uses for Australian Aborigines. The seeds were collected and ground to make seed cakesSpinifex resin was an important adhesive used in spear-making. Smoke signals were made to communicate with families and groups a long distance away, as burning spinifex produces a strong black smoke.

    Bunched together, spinfex is good for building shelters and as an instrument for spooning up water from deep soaks.

    The star shape patterns in this painting represent the clumps of the spinifex grass as they grow across Joanna's country, Ahalpere.
