Awelye means body paint design. These designs are painted by Aboriginal women on their breasts for particular ceremonies, in this case, bush melon and bush melon seed. Charmaine tells that her paintings depict the awelye culture coming through the country from the Ancestors, into the women as they paint each other up for ceremony. The larger concentric circular elements place the work geographically. These are camp sites in the Alawarr country of Utopia some 260km NNE of Alice Springs. This painting was exhibited in Charmaine’s debut solo exhibition at Art Mob, Hobart, in january 2015.
