Gracie Morton Pwerle comes from a highly regarded family of contemporary Indigenous Artists in Utopia (approximately 250kms north-east of Alice Springs). Gracie’s mother is Myrtle Petyarre and her daughter is Cindy Morton Pwerle. Like many female artists of her era, Gracie began working on Batik in the early 1970’s before moving onto canvas in the early 1980’s. Gracie’s paintings depict her Dreaming of “Bush Seeds” and “Bush Medicine Leaves”. In the Dreamtime, winds blew from all directions, carrying the bush seed across the ancestral lands. This is represented in her paintings through complex fine dot patterns to depict the contours and colours of the land and the walking tracks used by women to collect the bush seeds. The Bush Medicine Leaves Gracie paints are a central focus of her Dreaming, as they serve as a fundamental source for medicinal and ceremonial purposes as they are believed to promote longevity. Gracie is one of the senior traditional custodians for the Dreaming of the vast expanse of her country, some 263kms north of Alice Springs. In accordance to traditional law the responsibility for the “Bush Seed Dreaming” has been passed down to Gracie from her father and her aunt, who are responsible for ensuring that she perseveres its traditions. Gracie is highly regarded for her beautiful intricacy seen predominantly in her 'Bush Seeds’ Dreaming which she combines perfectly with her expert use of colour. In Gracie’s ‘Bush Medicine Leaves’ Dreaming, gracie creates a unique and recognisable flow of movement, as she paints the medicine leaves as they float to the ground in the warmer months.
