Artist Profile

Roseanne Morton Petyarre is a talented emerging artist in the world of contemporary aboriginal art. She was born in 1984 at Boundary Bore in Utopia, approx. 280km north east of Alice Springs, Northern Territory and had a traditional upbringing, attending school at Utopia so she could stay close to family.
Roseanne’s mother is renowned artist Gracie Morton Pwerle. Gracie started to paint on batik in the 1980’s along with her mother Myrtle Petyarre and Aunties Gloria, Kathleen, Violet, Nancy and Ada Bird Petyarre (all international artists).
Roseanne learnt from a young age the art of painting her dreamings, ceremonies and important bush foods onto canvas by watching her mother, aunties and grandmothers.
Roseanne continues to live at Utopia with her husband, Papunya artist, James Morris, and their two children. A lovely lady with immense talent, this third generation artist will no doubt have a long and successful career.

Artwork Description

Roseanne has painted the seed of the Bush Yam. The Desert yam is an important food source for the Aboriginal people from Utopia in central Australia. It has an impressive root system, spreading up to twelve metres from the stalk, and is commonly found in woodland areas nearby a water source. Its bright green leaves and yellow flowers, can spread over quite a wide area, growing strongly until after the rainfall months when it is harvested by digging it out of the ground. By depicting the Yam Dreaming in their paintings, indigenous artists are able to pay homage to this significant plant and encourage its continual rejuvenation.

The women perform in their Awelye ceremonies certain songlines and dance cycles to show respect for their country and to ensure continues productivity of the Desert yam.
