Polly Ngale

Polly Ngale was born around 1940 at Utopia, approx 270kms north east of Alice Springs in Central Australia. She is part the Anmatyerre tribe and one of the senior custodians from the Utopia community. Polly started her career in the 1980s, making silks as part of the batik project before moving onto painting. 

Polly Ngale is the sister of Kathleen Ngale and Angeline Pwerle, who are also established artists. Along with her sisters, Polly Ngale is a senior custodian of the Bush Plum (Arnwekety) Dreaming story.

In her paintings Polly Ngale depicts the bush plum using various shades to depict the contours of her country and the varying seasonal palette. She builds up layer upon layer of colour creating a multi-dimensional effect to reveal the bush plum and her country in all its glory. The bush plum grows all year and is collected by the Anmatyerre women. It has a pleasant sweet taste.
