Katie Morgan is a talented aboriginal artist living in Utopia and has been painting on canvas since the 1980’s, having commenced her artistic career along with many other women from Utopia by becoming involved in the batik projects of the 1970s.
Katie paints detailed and diverse dots covering the canvas which depict the Bush Orange or Wild Orange plant along with its flowers and fruits viewed from a bird’s eye view. This delightful natural food source highlights Katie’s inner relationship with her culture and country. The wild orange is peeled from its thick outer skin and eaten raw – it is sweet flavored. In addition it is widely acknowledged that this dreaming plays an important role in ceremonies conducted by the Utopia women.
