HELEN RUBUNTJA- BUSH SEEDS

Helen Rubuntja was born at the Ammaroo station, located 350km North- east of Alice Springs and now resides in the major artist community of Utopia.

Helen is the daughter of the prominent artist Nelly Rubuntja. Over time Helen has developed her artistic skill, which can be seen through her interpretation of “Bush Seeds” where she demonstrates her attentive and meticulous line and dot work.

In this painting Helen depicts the masses of multi-coloured bush seeds scattered across her country - often the aftermath of severe winds.

Bush seeds, found in Utopia have a multitude of purposes. Bush seeds are often ground down and mixed with traditional ochres to create the body paint known as 'Awelye' which the women paint on their breasts during their traditional ceremonies.

The bush seeds are also utilised by being ground down and made into damper, which is a common staple food source for Central Desert indigenous peoples.
