Bush Medicine by Abie Loy Kemarre

120cm x 60cm

Ethically sourced and 100% original

"Usually Abie's bush medicine leaf paintings are found in warm mixes of reds, yellows and white, or in cool, watery blues. It is uncommon to see a pastel-charged piece in pink and purple such as this enchanted piece. This is one of the reasons this piece is featured in Enchanted."

- Curator's Pick

In this painting Abie depicts the leaf of the antywerleny (Acacia tenuissima), a type of wattle. The leaves of the antywerleny are crushed and mixed with animal fat for use as a medicinal ointment, or soaked in water to make a medicinal wash. Abie says this particular bush medicine is still made and used by the people of her country today.

“Ikwerthey anter-anem thelem, apernelheyew-anem antywerlenyel”
Then you pour the fat into it and rub yourself with the antywerleny.
