Katie’s Dreaming is the Bush Orange or Wild Orange. Katie paints intricate and varied dots across the canvas that represent the Bush Orange plant, its flowers and fruits, from an aerial perspective. These beautiful organic cosmic-like creations, demonstrate Katie’s spiritual connection with her culture and country. Katie also paints the Kangaroo Dreaming.
Bush Orange is also known in Alyawarre as Atwakee. Once abundant but now scarce due to over grazing, this species was a stable source of bush tucker for Aboriginals. The fragrant small fruit hangs on long stalks and is green when unripe turning yellow or reddish in maturity. The fruit has a tough outer skin allowing the fruit to remain unspoilt for lengthy periods of time.
