Artwork Description

Acrylic Paint on canvas

Signed with a certificate of authenticity.

The artists of Ampilatwatja made a conscious decision not to paint ‘altyerr’ dreaming stories. The artists paint their country where those stories sit.

Margaret loves to paint and she is constantly inspired by country. When she goes hunting, she enjoys seeing the bush flowers and looking for bush medicine.

"We look for these plants in rocky country, we can find a little purple plum that we use to clean the kidneys and sometimes for flu. The yellow flowers are used for scabies, we boil them in water and wash our skin with it. The pink flowers we use for when we have sore eyes, we mix the flowers with water and the colour changes to a light green."

Communicating this love, knowledge and appreciation of country and all it provides is important to Margaret because "it keeps culture strong."
