Polly Ngale


Bush Plum Dreaming

Acrylic on canvas  
150 x 200 cm

Polly uses a heavily loaded paint brush to work the many layers of colourful dots onto the linen. Blended whimsically, the dots create the effect of the flowering plants, the scattered seeds of the Bush Plum and the landscape after the heavy rain season. The composition of colour and shape variations points to the geography and intimate knowledge of locations. The Bush Plum is of significance to the region of Utopia and the people who are attached to the Dreaming. The women celebrate the Bush plum in their awelye ceremonies.
