In this vibrant exhibition, the artists share their expertise about native flora and its therapeutic uses through their paintings of bush food and bush medicine stories. Traditional knowledge of the medicinal benefits, application and collection of native plants extends back over 60,000 years.

Artist Julianne Turner Nungurrayi said, “I love bush medicine. Why I love bush foods and medicine is, it is part of our tradition, it heals our spirit and is part of our culture. We still use our own bush medicine. We can find bush medicine even in the city – we use Lyuk Lyuk, found along the Adelaide road sides to boil and soak in the water for antiseptic wash. It is good for scabies, flu, and things like that.”

Tarnanthi is produced by the Art Gallery of South Australia and this year features the works of 1000 artists with exhibitions shown in the Art Gallery and in close to 30 partner venues, including the WCH.
