International Women’s Day is when we celebrate being women and acknowledge the challenges we face and often overcome. These Aboriginal artists lived a traditional nomadic lifestyle before the “white fella” found them in the desert. Given the lack of valuable resources and remoteness of the Warlpiri land the skin groups were mostly left to continue their life unhindered. However, some were pressed into domestic servitude as well as experiencing violence at the hands of the white settlers. The Coniston massacre was amongst some of the worst violence visited upon them seeing many retreating to place like Mt Theo to hide.
The spirit the Warlpiri people retained despite the harshness of the new life thrust upon them has passed onto future generations. Judy ( in the forefront) was instrumental in retaining knowledge of Country by sharing her life stories and Mina Mina Dreaming with the younger children. She was the embodiment of strength and wisdom who became an internationally renowned artist despite all the challenges she and other Warlpiri woman faced.

View of Country - Margaret Kemarre Ross, Acrylic on Linen 61x51cm
This painting reminds us of the the colours you find in a Van Gogh - the glorious yellows in the still life works “Sunflowers” and the colour of “Irises”.
It is of course the Australian outback with its ever changing shades as the sun moves through the day altering the colour of the plants and rocky outcrops.
Margaret Kemarre Ross’s family have been outbush for thousands of years collecting bush medicine from their Alyawarr land. Alyawarr is a rich botanical garden for its inhabitants. Each flower serves a medicinal purpose. The little purple ones, for example, can be used for the flu as well as easing kidney pain. When mixed with water the pink ones help with sore eyes and the yellow ones are used to wash their skin.
While expressing her passion for bush medicines paintings also serves to communicate her love of Country as it “keeps culture strong”.
