KATRINA RUBUNTJA- BUSH LEAVES

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

Katrina is a relative of the prominent artist Nelly Rubuntja Petyarre. She is also the niece of the well-known artists Helen and Agnes Rubuntja.

Katrina learnt her artistic craft from both her aunties, often painting "Bush Leaves" where she fills the canvas with detailed colourful bush leaves and seeds.

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.
