  • 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.

    Leaves by Gloria Petyarre (SOLD)

    30cm x 30cm

    This painting represents leaves, some of which have medicinal qualities. Gloria's mother taught her how to make a medicinal ointment from these leaves; she would crush the leaves and mix it with fat from kangaroos and echidnas. The resulting ointment was applied to their faces and hair so that its powerful aroma would linger and aid in the relief of colds.

    Colours: Matisse's Magenta Light and Titanium White on a black background.

    This painting comes unstretched and rolled in a tube.
