Mary Rumble Pitjara (Petyarre)
Bush Medicine Leaves | 40h x 40w | RK060
Stretched - no frame | Acrylic on canvas
Mary Rumble Pitjara (Petyarre) was born in 1957 and lives in the Utopia region of central Australia. She is the sister of Katie Rumble and her extended family includes famous artists Gloria Petyarre and Gracie Morton Pwerle.
Mary most often paints bush medicine leaves, and this charmer is a fine example of her work. Different kinds of leaves are gathered by the womenfolk to cure a range of ailments. Ideal to brighten up a room without dominating it, this painting is very affordable. You’d pay more for a print in an art shop than for this genuine original painting.
