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 Loy 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 represents the Bush Hen Dreaming, which describes the travels of the Bush Hen searching for bush plums, berries and bush tomatoes. These foods are also eaten by Aboriginal people, and some species are used as a bush medicine. The Bush Hen Dreaming is a significant totem to certain families from Utopia in Central Australia. Ceremonies are performed to pay homage to the Bush Hen ancestor. The women will chant song lines and dance cycle to re-enact the Dreaming.
