BUSHFLOWER

Utopia has an extreme desert climate. The summer is hot with temperatures often exceeding forty degrees Celsius. In winter the nights are freezing cold and frosts occur from June to August, periods of drought in the outback are not uncommon. During the droughts vegetation is sparse and only spinifex and mulga shrubs subsist, though they appear withered and lifeless. The rest of the flora lays dormant in anticipation of the cyclic deluge (dry cycles are known to have continued for up to a decade and longer).

After the infrequent rain the desert landscape is transformed. The dried out spinifex flower resemble a field of wheat and the mulga shrub bears green dense foliage and masses of bright yellow flowers. Growing amongst these plants is an abundance of wildflowers that turns the deep red coloured desert floor into a utopian garden,

In this painting the artist pays homage to the spirit of the flowers. The transformation of the land means new growth and regeneration. Thus the renewal of the bush tucker so necessary for survival.
