‘Anwekety’ (Bush Plum) by Belinda Golder Kngwarreye
In Jukurroa dreaming, winds blew these anwekety seeds all over the ancestral lands. This bore the first fruits of the Utopian lands, which then grew in abundance to provide food for the Anmatyerre people. The dreaming story of the seeds and the ripening of the fruits is evident in Belinda's painting. Belinda loads her paintbrush with harmonious colours and works in gestural motions across the canvas. The layer upon layer of colours blend to create a three-dimensional effect, echoing the beauty of this dreaming story.
