Bush Women is a collection of texts exploring the striking history of six Indigenous women artists from the Kimberley: from living on Country, to the arrival of Europeans, stations and missions, to the contemporary era of telephones and acrylic paints, their lives are as underscored by radical change as they are by the continuity of the Dreaming stories of their lands.
Bush Women was published on the occasion of the 25th anniversary of a 1994 exhibition at Fremantle Arts Centre, featuring paintings by Daisy Andrews, Tjapartji Kanytjuri Bates, Tjingapa Davies, Paji Honeychild Yankkarr, Queenie McKenzie (Gara-Gara) and Pantjit Mary McLean. The contribution of these artists to the history of women's' art in Western Australia and to the expression of 20th-Century Indigenous lived experience is far-reaching and continues to engage audiences in contemporary exhibitions, collections and archives.
