Artwork Description

Acrylic Paint on canvas

Signed with a certificate of authenticity

This artwork comes with an external frame

One of Louise's totems is the Bush Medicine Plant and she expresses her connection to the plant in a similar painting style to her famous Aunt, the renowned artist Gloria Petyarre. The Bush Medicine Plant is an Australian native that grows wild in Central Australia. Women go to different places around Utopia to collect leaves from these plants. Back at the camp the leaves are boiled to extract resin. Kangaroo fat is mixed into the resin, creating a paste that can be stored for a long time in bush conditions. This medicine is used to heal cuts, wounds, bites, rashes and also acts as an insect repellent.

By painting about "Bush Medicine" Louise is paying homage to the spirit of the medicine plant in the hope that it will regenerate, enabling the people to continue to benefit from its healing properties.
