This lively work has a predominance of Central Desert bush tones in order to distinguish between the ripe and overripe fruits and flowers of the watercourse rangeland of Emily’s traditional country. As the yam ripens the colours change as reflected in the painting and the earth cracks open. These plants produce the Anooralya ,or actual yam tuber, and a seed bearing yellow flower called Kame synonymous with Emily’s name.
This plant is Emily’s main custodial responsibility.Share
