‘My Country’

For thousands of years First Nations people have gathered and prepared native fruits, vegetables, herbs and seeds. Bush Tucker is a way in which Indigenous peoples continue to connect with Country, and artwork serves as an important expression of this. These artworks tell stories of different bush foods, how they are gathered and eaten. Art is one of the key ways that this important knowledge is passed on from generation to generation (Utopia Lane Gallery, 2021).

While symbolism within Indigneous artworks is common, bush tucker is also often illustrated in its natural form. These kinds of paintings show the true shapes and colours of fruits, herbs and insects. The artworks will often also show women collecting the foods and going about their daily rituals. Collecting bush tucker is a common subject that many Utopian artists and other Central Australian Aboriginal artists paint.
