Gracie Pwerle Morton - Bush Plum

RETURN TOP

The delightfully subtle paintings of the Amwekety - the Bush Plum, depict the changing seasonal influences on a plant that is of the greatest significance to the Alyawrre women of the Eastern Desert region of the Northern Territory.

Gracie Morton Pwerle (aka Gracie Morton Pwerl) is one of the senior traditional custodian for both the Altyerre (Dreaming) and the vast expanse of related country, some 263kms north of Alice Springs, Australia. In accordance to traditional law the responsibility for the Bush Plum Dreaming has been passed down to Gracie from her father and her aunt, who are responsible for ensuring that she perseveres its traditions. Bush Plum highly nutritious are small fruit with black seeds, rich in vitamin C, that can be eaten raw or cooked. Growing in a great profusion of flower and fruit throughout the winter months, the women, accompanied by the children collect the Bush Plums, while at the same time reconfirming their connection to the land.

The flourish of colour that distinguishes the Bush Plum after the fall of rain, is quickly transformed with the long hot summer months. Dried and separated, the seed and husk are scatter over the vast sunbaked landscape by the hot summer winds. The incredible finesse of Gracie’s style creates a wonderful lyricism in her works, causing a three-dimensionality that pulls at the eye guiding the viewer through the soft, outward-reaching fields of colour, while simultaneously transfixing one in its undulations.
