ABIE LOY KEMARRE - MEDICINE LEAVES

Abie Loy Kemarre  is one of Australia’s leading indigenous artists. She began painting in 1994 under the guidance of her famous grandmother, Kathleen Petyarre who imparted the methodology for certain depth-of-field of tiny shimmering lines in her highly delicate paintings.  She paints severl styles depicting stories passed down from family incuding the Bush Hen Dreaming , Yam Leaves, My Country, Mountain Devil Lizard and Awelye paintings. Abie's unique signature style of paintings have brought her critical acclaim that postures her at the leading edge of the Australian contemporary art movement.

Abie Loy is included in many of Australia's public Gallery collections and several in the USA, as well as in private collections including the Kerry Stokes Collection in Perth. She has participated in several solo exhibitions in Australia and has also exhibited in group exhibitions in Japan, the US, the Netherlands, Germany, Paris  and Indonesia. She is also currently featured in the National Gallery Of Australia.

This painting depicts leaves of a special plant that are used for medical purposes. Women go to different places around her country, Utopia, to collect such leaves. Once selected the leaves are boiled to extract resin and kangaroo fat is mixed through creating a paste that can be stored in the bush for extended periods. The medicine is used to heal cuts, bites, burns, rashes and also acts as an insect repellant.
