Art work Description:
As senior custodians, Kathleen and Poly Ngal share great responsibility as keepers of cultural knowledge for their country Arlparra, located in the heart of Utopia, 250 kms North East of Alice Springs. They belong to the oldest living generation of Utopia (both artists believed to be in their seventies) and are among the most accomplished painters who have worked at Utopia during the past 20 years. Both Kathleen and Poly Ngal began their careers in late 1979, involved in the production of Batiks, made by artists in Utopia prior to the introduction of painting on canvas in the mid to late 1980s. Poly Ngal’s paintings often depict bright yellow seeds, feast for the emus, amongst the Bush Plums that grow in her country. Her paintings are borne from traditional knowledge and Poly’s confident approach to her work can be seen in the way she assembles streams of seeds, piling dots upon each other to create rich thick fields of glowing palettes of colour. Poly was a finalist in the 21st Telstra National Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Award, 2004.
