Born around 1952, Audrey Morton Kngwarreye is an important Aboriginal artist continuously painting since 1977. She is regarded as a contemporary abstract artist. Mary Kemarre Morton is Audrey's mother and Billy Stockman Morton Pitjara 1921-2007 father, both well-known Australian artists. Audrey inherited the artistic gene and the family Dreaming stories. Audrey was raised by family of well-known indigenous artists, including Emily Kame Kngwarreye (1910-1996) and three sisters Gracie Morton, Lucky Morton and Ruby Morton. Audrey participated in batik workshops that were held in Utopia from 1977 to 1987. Her work is represented in the Holmes á Court Collection and exhibited extensively within Australia and around the world. Made up of fine dashes and intricate details, Audrey Moron Kngwarreye paintings are hypnotic, images seems to move with the viewer’s eyes and floats in the air. Her paintings have the sheer physical presence of the much contemporary work of art, able to capture a multi-dimensional aspect of space and depth.



Utopia has an extreme desert climate. The summer is hot with temperatures often exceeding forty degrees Celsius. In winter the nights are freezing cold and frosts occur from June to August, periods of drought in the outback are not uncommon. During the droughts vegetation is sparse and only spinifex and mulga shrubs subsist, though they appear withered and lifeless. The rest of the flora lays dormant in anticipation of the cyclic deluge (dry cycles are known to have continued for up to a decade and longer).

After the infrequent rain the desert landscape is transformed. The dried out spinifex flower resemble a field of wheat and the mulga shrub bears green dense foliage and masses of bright yellow flowers. Growing amongst these plants is an abundance of wildflowers that turns the deep red coloured desert floor into a utopian garden,

In this painting the artist pays homage to the spirit of the flowers. The transformation of the land means new growth and regeneration. Thus the renewal of the bush tucker so necessary for survival.
