This presentation will look at Indigenous art across Australia, pointing out the diversity of content, styles and materials – from rock art and bark paintings to wood and eventually canvas – but emphasising the consistent legends and myths connected with what indigenous people call The Dreaming, to do with the creation of the land. Artists from the Papunya group, who worked in the mid 1970’s at Hermannsburg, continued this tradition. Dot painting is thought to be typical of Indigenous art, but there are a number of other styles; contemporary art and sculpture is very diverse. Works from some of the artists will be shown.
REQUIREMENTS: No requirements; class members may take notes if they wish.
TUTOR: Dorothy was a teacher and administrator in the TAFE system for 30 years. She then spent 20 years as a voluntary guide with the NGV and is now a tutor at the Australian Tapestry Workshop in South Melbourne.
