  • 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 Medicine Leaf (Antywerleny) by Abie Loy Kemarre (SOLD)

    30cm x 30cm

    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.
