Artist Profile

Dulcie Long Pula was born in 1979 at Boundary Bore Outstation in the Utopia region of the Northern Territory.  She is an Anmatyerre woman.
 
Dulcie is a member of one of the most renowned painting families in Australia. Dulcie’s mother is respected artist Jeannie (Pitjara) Petyarre and her famous relatives include Emily Kame Kngwarreye, Gloria and Kathleen Petyarre, Greeny Purvis Petyarre and the Pwerle sisters, Minnie, Emily, Galya and Molly.
 
It was these relatives who encouraged Dulcie to paint the Desert Yam (or Bush Plum) story from her family’s country which she does so with meticulous execution. Dulcie depicts the leaves of the yam, paying homage to the spirit of this special plant in the hope that it will regenerate.
 
A very traditional lady, Dulcie lives with her extended family at Utopia and works as a carer at the aged care facility.  Dulcie will no doubt delight collectors within Australia and worldwide with the unique art of Utopia, memorable for the amazing colour and flowing imagery.  

Artwork Description

This artwork depicts the Bush Plum (or Desert Yam). The varying composition in colour and pattern reveals the geography of the Bush plum, as well as the artist’s knowledge of significant places, such as clay-pans, soakages and spinifex mounds. Bush Plum is a food source for the Aboriginal people from Utopia in the Eastern desert of Central Australia. The women pay homage through body paint, songlines and dance cycles in their ceremonies.

Loving how Kirstie finds brilliant artists and shares not only the artwork, but the back story of both the piece AND the artist. You can tell she absolutely loves Aboriginal art, and she has such great rapport with the artists.
