CARMEN PITJARA JONES
Artist: Carmen Pitjara Jones
Carmen Pitjara Jones lives with her partner and child at Irrultja, Utopia.
Carmen comes from a line of distinguished artists who include Joy Kngwarreye Jones and Freddy Kngwarreye Jones, and Charlie Petyarre Jones.
Bush Onion Dreaming involves the bush onion and the origins of the Alywarr people and language. Carmen’s mother told her stories concerning the origins of the bush onion, and therefore Carmen is entitled to tell these stories and paint them.
In her paintings she depicts the Bush Onion plant growing in profusion after the summer rains. The small tubers which form on short stolons are a traditional bush tucker food for Australian Aborigines. They are dug up on creek banks when the grass of the onion has dried out. The husk can also be eaten.
