Bush Plum Dreaming

synthetic polymer paint on canvas

120 x 120 cm

PROVENANCE:
Red Sand Art Gallery, Alice Springs, NT Coo-ee Art Gallery, Sydney, NSW


OTHER NOTES:
Arlperre is a significant site on Utopia Station. This is country that belongs to the Kngale and Kemarre custodians who paint the Bush Plum or Conkleberry, which thrives for one in every seven years after huge storms. The orange, red, blue purple colours represent different degrees of ripness of the plum with the purple indicating it is suitable to eat.

The final flourish of white over laying the canvas represent the sun dried leaves, seeds, husks and grasses of Arlperre.
