Description 

The Artists of Ampilatwatja are once again showing their dappled canvases at Salon Art Projects.

Whether you need kwenkart (turkey bush) for headache, therrpeyt (native fuchsia) for flu, or ntang (edible seeds) for feeding the family, the Ampilatwatja artists have an exquisite bush medicine guide for you to enjoy in the form of painting. The intricate painted layers both reveal and conceal traditional knowledge held by the artists, allowing the viewer an insight into ancient healing practices.
