Josie (Josepha) Petrick


Bush Plum Dreaming by Josie Petrick Kemarre (SOLD)

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.
