Artwork Description

Acrylic Paint on canvas

Signed on the back

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 Meeting Places are represented by the white dots, and this is where women go to collect the leaves.

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.
