Artist Profile

Judy is the eldest daughter to the late Greeny Purvis Petyarre and Kathleen Kemarre. Greeny was an international artist and senior custodian for Alhalkere country. Judy’s Great Aunt is the late Emily Kngwarreye – arguably Australia’s most famous aboriginal artist. They have assisted and instructed this young painter both culturally and artistically.

Judy is a naturally talented artist whose works are sort after by collectors both in Australia and overseas. She is without a doubt one of the shining lights of the younger generation of Aboriginal artists. Judy was involved with the Utopia Batik movement and her work features in the prestigious Holmes á Court collection.

Artwork Description

Judy depicts the root system of the bush plum (Yam) that intermingle. The bush plum is renowned for its medicinal properties. It is a special plant that is used to aid in the healing process. The leaves are collected and then boiled to extract the resin from the leaves. After this the resin is mixed with kangaroo fat and this creates a paste that can be stored for up to six months in bush conditions. This medicine is used to heal cuts, wounds, bites, rashes and as an insect repellent. By painting the bush yam Judy is paying homage to the spirit of the medicine plant in the hope that it will regenerate, enabling the people to use its healing powers.
