The second part of Japingka Gallery's 2008 coverage of Utopia artists-includes work by Emily Pwerle, Galya Pwerle, Kathleen Petyarre, Gloria Petyarre, Abie Loy Kemarre and June Bird. The Utopia artists are recognised for their subtle colour and sophisticated constructs that reflect the natural world of their desert homelands. Ceremonial designs, bush foods and traditional medicine, seasonal changes to plants and country are all represented in the complex elements that underlie the best of Utopia paintings.
