This artwork is a depiction of Barbara’s mothers country, Utopia (Unupurna in local language) which is located to the North East of Alice Springs in the Northern Territory. Her particular country is known as Atnwengerrp. This style is a full departure from Barbara’s Grass Seed artwork, for which she is most widely known. Created using a delicate network of dots painted over an underlying story, she tells the story of the Ancestral Spirits looking over the country and ensuring that the flora and fauna continues to be available to the men and women of the area.
