You can find and buy indigenous art Australia wide at accessible prices from an online art gallery. The most exciting area to buy indigenous art is from the Utopian area of central Australia, 250km north east of Alice Springs. Utopia is an Aboriginal freehold property, handed back to the traditional owners, the Anmatyerre and Alyawaree people in 1975.
Here aboriginal painters produce their work outdoors, under a hot sun, at one with the country which they represent in their art. Collections of works from Utopian artists have been shown in England, Europe, Asia, USA and of course in every national gallery across Australia.
Each artist has a Dreamtime custodianship which maps the Australian continent, connecting Aboriginal people to each other and to the land. All Aboriginal paintings have an underlying narrative based on mythological creation stories referred to as Dreamings (or a Dreaming in the singular). Yam Dreaming, Possum Dreaming, Rain Dreaming, and Fire Dreaming are all stories that describe how things came to be as they are today at specific places in the landscape.
There is a large array of the imagery used in Indigenous paintings. These include concentric circles to represent people, or a campsite or waterhole. U-shapes can be the indentations left by a sitting figure. Tracks marks represent the various animals and also ancestral beings, either in straight or meandering lines. Boomerangs can be shown as arcs and short lines can be digging sticks or spears. Perhaps the most well-known aspect of Aboriginal art are dots which can show the topography of the artists’ country or homeland, as seen from above.
The Utopian women, as well as depicting their dreaming, also explore the sacred body marks used in dreamtime ceremonies in abstraction form. Utopian women artists include respected names such as Minnie Pwerle, Evelyn Pultara, Dorothy Napangardi, Dolly Mills Petyarre and Rosemary Bird Mpetyane.
The Utopian men model their canvas painting on the sacred geometric ceremonial paintings which were traditionally made on the ground. Now they use canvas to transfer the designs from the ephemeral to the tangible. Kudditji Kngwarreye, William King Jungala, Tommy Jones Kngwarrey, Walala Tjapaltjarri and Louis Pwerle are established and reputable male Utopian artists.
