ROSEANNE MORTON PETYARRE - BUSH MEDICINE LEAVES

Roseanne Morton Petyarre is a talented emerging artist in the world of contemporary aboriginal art. She was born in 1984 at Boundary Bore in Utopia, approx. 280km northeast of Alice Springs, Northern Territory and had a traditional upbringing, attending school at Utopia so she could stay close to family. Roseanne’s mother is renowned artist Gracie Morton Pwerle and she is the grand-daughter of the internationally famous Kathleen Petyarre.

Roseanne learned from a young age the art of painting her dreamings, ceremonies and important bush foods onto canvas by watching her mother, aunties, and grandmothers.

Roseanne continues to live at Utopia with her husband, Papunya artist, James Morris, and their two children

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.
