Artwork Description

Acrylic on canvas

Signed certificate of authenticity.

In this painting, Louise paints the Bush Medicine Plant. 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 acts as an insect repellent. The leaves have been used as a traditional form of Indigenous healing for centuries and continue to be used in the present day by remote Indigenous communities all over Australia.

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