Currently amongst the most senior custodians of her country Arparra, in the heart of Utopia, 250 kms North East of Alice Springs, Poly Ngal shares with her sisters, Kathleen Ngal, and Angelina responsibility as keepers of its cultural knowledge. Now in her seventies, she belongs to the oldest living generation of Utopia women and ranks amongst the most accomplished painters who have worked there during the past 20 years. Like many others including Emily Kame Kngawarrye and Gloria Petyarre, Poly began her career in late 1979 creating images in Batik, prior to the introduction of painting on canvas in the late 1980s.
