Over het kunstwerk

In this painting Minnie Pwerle depicts the ceremony of the Bush Melon . This is a kind of fruit that is common in Utopia, the area where Minnie is from. At the performance of the ceremony of the Bush Melon, women sing and dance and are decorated with body paint. During the performing of the dance, the women create long tracks in the sand by the movement of their feet. In her paintings, Minnie depicts these tracks by painting lines in different colours en thickness. Minnie painted several paintings with these patterns, which stand out because of their contrasting use of colour.
