About the Artist
Rosemary Pitjara (Petyarre) was born c1965, in Utopia, north east of Alice Springs, Northern Territory. Rosemary is the niece of internationally acclaimed artist Emily Knangwarreye. She is a fantastic artist in her own right and is the new generation of fine artists from the Utopia region. Her work is very finely detailed and is another fine example of Utopia art.
Story: The Bush Coconut or bloodwood apple, is an Australian native food or 'bush tucker' eaten by the Aboriginal people of Central Australia. The Bush Coconut is in fact a combination of plant and animal in that it actually a gall induced on the tree by a type of scale insect. The gall is the size of an apple with a rough exterior and a small grub can be found inside after breaking the fruit open. Both the grub and the white flesh of the fruit are eaten. The designs she paints are bush medicine, yam dreaming and body painting. As a bush woman, she is familiar with her land and its abundance of bush tucker species, medicine plants and native fauna. These are important women's stories, from which she paints.
