  • About the Artists

    Our vibrant and dynamic artists are from the Utopia region; a large remote area of Central Australia which, until recently, had no government funded art centre. As a result of their pioneering efforts, they have one of the strongest and richest art histories.

    Bush Plum Dreaming by Josie Petrick Kemarre (SOLD)

    30cm x 30cm

    There are many little black plum-like berries in the Central Australian bush. This particular plum-like berry that Josie is painting is actually a mistletoe (angkwerrpme in Josie's language), and one of just a few varieties that have edible berries; making it an important food source.

    Josie's painting explores the ripening stages of these berries through maturity.

    After significant rainfall, the desert transforms from an analogous landscape to a panorama of abundant colour and vegetation.

    These sweet edible berries change from green to shades of yellow, red and orange before finally a blueish purple (close to black) when it falls from the stem and is collected in bulk.
