About This Artist

ROSIE PULA

Born circa 1945 in Central Australia, Rosie is an Anmatyerre woman who lives at Mosquito Bore in the Utopia Homelands. As an artist, she emerged from the CAAMA batik program of the early eighties in Utopia, where she travelled together with other artists to Samoa to learn Batik techniques. Rosie has since developed into a known artist using acrylic paints on canvas. Her style consists of very fine dot work often combined with Awelye (body paint design) which depicts both the country, the bush plum and the bush plum seeds fallen to the ground. Her work celebrates sacred women's ceremonies and this native food source which is her plant totem. Her unique motif that she incorporates into most of her recent paintings has a dual perspective. It is an aerial view of the land incorporating a walking track and a `meeting placeĀ“ or ceremonial site. From a vertical perspective however, the design resembles the leaves and fruit of the bush plum plant itself.
