Margaret Loy Pula's solo exhibition of paintings, Unjangola: My Fathers Country, depicts traditional Aboriginal stories and tradition; now showing at Mitchell Fine Art in Fortitude Valley until Saturday, April 15, 2023. 

Hailing from the small, remote community of Utopia (Urapuntja) in Central Australia, award-winning artist Margaret Loy Pula paints her culture, tradition, and her father’s dreaming.

Margaret Loy Pula in Uptopia

The small community of Utopia has been at the forefront of the Australian contemporary Aboriginal art movement and is home of artists including Emily Kame Kngwarreye and the Petyarre sisters - Gloria, Kathleen, Nancy, Ada, Myrtle and Violet.

Exposed to art for all her life, Margaret Loy Pula is the daughter of Kathleen Petyarre (dec). Her story is ‘Anatye’ or Bush Potato Dreaming, and her fine detailed artworks portray the traditional bush food that has sustained the Anmatyerre people for thousands of years.

“This painting is about my culture. That’s my father’s dreaming. This is from my father’s country, that country is called “Unjangola” says Loy Pula.

Margaret Loy Pula was the first Indigenous artist to win the prestigious Waterhouse Natural History Art Prize and the first female artist to win the Sunshine Coast Art Prize and Paddington Art Prize.  In 2017, Margaret Loy Pula won the Tattersall's Art Prize in Brisbane.

Loy Pula has held exhibitions in New York and exhibited at some of the world’s top art fairs including Art Singapore, Art Miami, New York, and Zona MACO in Mexico City.
