Title: Bush Medicine Leaves, size 150 x 60 cm.
Dreaming: The leaves of the Kurrajong tree are significant to women of Utopia and their medicinal uses are wide. The trees are believed to have existed for longer than aboriginal culture and their leaves have been collected, dried and then boiled to make poultices and healing herbal drinks for many thousands of years. Gloria often paints this dreaming in her contemporary 'big brush' style instead of the finer leaf version.
