The Lost chapter reflects on a variety of indigenous fruits to include coral berries, blue quandong, wild strawberries, munties, desert quandong, gubinge, blue tongue and rosella. These plants are rich food sources that many of us are unfamiliar with. The European bias leaves knowledge about these fruits lost to most. Fortunately, we are in a time of reawakening hopefully before these fruits are simply gone. My own adventures on country have me questioning how the land provides nourishment for us and in working this small collection, I am reminded of the adventures and works, of Ellis Rowan known as the “Flower Hunter” because of her passion for documenting the flowers she found during her travels. On occasion she also documented the fruits.
About Door to Door:
In March at the beginning of lockdown, we invited Art Aviso Artists to be part of Art Aviso event 8.0 – Door to Door (Art in the time of COVID-19 or Art from isolation)
Artists were supplied via email or post with a page from Newnes’ Pictorial Knowledge 1950’s Encyclopedia (Edited by Enid Blyton) selected at random, which was to form the basis of an artwork to be exhibited at some time on the other side of the Pandemic. Artworks could be any medium but needed to be created on paper of A4 size and remain unframed.
