KATRINA RUBUNTJA- BUSH SEEDS

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" or "Bush Seeds" where she fills the canvas with detailed colourful bush leaves and seeds.

In this painting Katrina depicts the masses of multi-coloured bush seeds scattered across her country - often the aftermath of severe winds.

Bush seeds, found in Utopia have a multitude of purposes. Bush seeds are often ground down and mixed with traditional ochres to create the body paint known as 'Awelye' which the women paint on their breasts during their traditional ceremonies.

The bush seeds are also utilised by being ground down and made into damper, which is a common staple food source for Central Desert indigenous peoples.
