Description

Denisa paints bush tucker that can be found in her country. Often featured in her paintings are anwekety (conkerberry), tyape (witchetty grubs) and bush banana.

The conkerberry (or conkleberry) known as anwekety or bush plum to Denisa, is a sweet black berry that is favoured by desert aboriginals. This fruit looks very similar to a plum and is often referred to in English by Denisa as a 'bush plum'. They only grow on the plant (Carissa lanceolata) for a few weeks of the year, however Denisa's people collect plenty of them and store them dry, soaking them in water again before being consumed. The plant of the conkerberry is a tangled, spiny shrub that can grow up to 2m high and after rain fragrant white flowers bloom. This plant also bares medicinal properties. Dot work represents the anwekety.

Denisa also paints bush flowers and waterholes (concentric circles). Linear designs which can ofen be found in the corners represent Awelye (women's ceremonial body paint designs).
