Item Description

Allery says, "This is the Fortescue Mulla Mulla, Gumbarli in Yindjibarndi language. The flower is a purplish colour. Not a bush medicine, just a flower that grows in the country, in lines along the roads, everywhere. In this painting, the seeds of the Mulla Mulla are all blowing out. Once the leaves and petals have fallen off the seeds are blown all through the land to bring flowers again next year."

Allery Sandy regularly exhibits in private galleries in Fremantle and Sydney, has won a number of prizes at the Cossack Art Awards, and is represented in public and private collections. Allery has been the Chairperson of Yinjaa-Barni Art since 2006 and is a highly respected member of the Yindjibarndi community and a passionate communicator of her culture. In 2014, Allery was both a performer and Yindjibarndi language and cultural advisor for the play, "Hipbone Sticking Out".
