Artist Profile

Violet Petyarre was born on the old Utopia Station at Atnagkere Soakage, c. 1938. She is an Anmatyerre speaker and is a significant Elder of one of the most important movements which has emerged from desert painting, the Utopia Women. Violet is the sister of artists Kathleen, Gloria, Ada Bird (dscd), Nancy (dscd), Myrtle and Jean Petyarre – all International artists.

Originally working with batik in 1977, Violet painted the Mountain Devil Lizard Dreaming which is from her father’s country on silk textiles. In 1988 she commenced painting on canvas, which she produced alongside her sister Kathleen Petyarre and her Aunt, the late Emily Kame Kngwarreye.

Her work was immediately noticed and acquired by major private and corporate collections worldwide. Violet currently lives at Mosquito Bore Outstation in the Utopia region.

Artwork Description

This artwork depicts the Bush Plum (or Conkerberry). Belinda’s grandmother, Polly Ngale, is the senior custodian of the Bush Plum Dreaming. The varying composition in colour and pattern reveals the geography of the Bush plum, as well as the artist’s knowledge of significant places, such as clay-pans, soakages and spinifex mounds. Bush Plum is a food source for the Aboriginal people from Utopia in the Eastern desert of Central Australia. The women pay homage through body paint, songlines and dance cycles in their ceremonies.
