  • 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.

    Dreamtime Sisters by Colleen Wallace Nungari (SOLD)

    60cm x 45cm
    The Dreamtime Sisters are good spirits dancing and looking after Colleen's country. Colleen says these sisters were once living people; her ancestors. There is a sacred site on Colleen's country where Dreamtime Sisters are carved on the rock walls, and on these walls this is what they look like. At this site, women perform ceremony for Arlatyeye (a pencil yam) and its seed. Sisters are connected spiritually to the site which is represented by the thick, curved white lines. It is night time when they have their ceremony and the cooler coloured dots represent this. The rest of the painting is filled with warm, bright coloured dots which represent the day time when women collect the yam. Circles throughout are symbolic of waterholes scattered over the country or where the women dig for arlatyeye. Two arlatyeye leaves are seen at the bottom of this painting. They grow on vines that flourish above ground after rain.
