A leading member of the Utopia batik group in the 1980s, Gloria Petyarre travelled to Ireland, England, France, Thailand and India representing the Utopia women with the exhibition that showed these works in 1990 Utopia - A Picture Story, the Holmes a Court Collection.

BUSH MEDICINE DREAMING

This painting depicts the 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 repellent.
