ARTIST BIO

Mary Rumble Pitjara was born around 1957 in Utopia, approximately 350km northeast of Alice Springs in the Northern Territory.

Mary was taught her dreaming by her renowned aunties Gloria Petyarre and Gracie Morton Pwerle. Mary Began on canvas and overtime, developed her own unique depictions of her Dreamtime.

Mary’s dreamtime stories include Bush Tucker, Awelye, Bush Medicine Dreaming, Rock Hole and Kangaroo dreaming, focusing on the sacred land that is Utopia and the abundant resources it provides for the Utopian community.

Mary’s fine dot style is enhanced with her intricate use of detail, particularly seen in her representations of “Bush Medicine Leaves”” and “Rock Hole”.

The artist’s use of rich background colours overlayed with contrasting dot work, creates beautiful works of contemporary Indigenous art.
