About Bush Hen Dreaming

The artwork titled “Bush Hen Dreaming” was created by artist Abie Loy Kemarre in 1999. It is an abstract piece that falls within the Native Art movement, illustrating the rich cultural expressions and spiritual narratives rooted in indigenous art traditions.

The artwork exhibits an intricate pattern of dots arrayed across a monochromatic backdrop. At the center, there is a pronounced circle that appears to radiate lines and circles of varying sizes and densities outwards, creating a dynamic sense of movement. Each dot meticulously placed resonates with the precise technique and deep cultural significance that is emblematic of the artist’s heritage.

The dominant earth tones and the subtle nuances in the shades suggest an organic connection, perhaps to the land or the spiritual story being conveyed. This suggests an intentional invocation of the natural world and its deep-seated role within the cultural contexts of the artist’s indigenous background. The layering of the dots gives the piece a textured feel, making the surface seem almost tactile.

“Bush Hen Dreaming” is an exemplar of how abstract forms can embody complex cultural narratives and evoke a profound response from the observer, tapping into the spirituality and connection with nature that defines much of indigenous Australian art.
