  • 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.

    Ntyweyampe by Josie Kunoth Petyarre (SOLD)

    210cm x 90cm

    Designs in this painting are inspired by the honey collected from the Corkwood tree called Ntyweyampe. Ntyweyampe comes from two Anmatyerre words: ntywey for the Corkwood tree, and ampe for honey.

    The Corkwood tree produces beautiful yellow flowers and distinct corky bark. Honey is obtained from the flowers, either by sucking them or steeping them in water to make a sweet drink. This is also drunk when you are sick. In the hot summer months, the honey also trickles out of the flowers and down the tree, turning the bark into a delicious chewy treacle.

    'You eat it, you chew it. It’s like treacle running down tree. It is a good medicine for the body for the inside.’ - Kenny Tilmouth
