Dot Painting

So called because it is created by using dots of paint.
Originally created on the ground at corrobborrees.
Used to educate young clan members about the Dreamtime stories and survival information.

Dot Painting

In the early 1970's, Geoffrey Bardon, a white art advisor
in the western desert of central Australia, convinced the
Aboriginal elders at Papunya to paint their Dreamings
on the community school's wall.

Dot Painting

The effect was so stunning that it launched an entire movement
of desert Aboriginal painting. First rendered on art board,
then on canvas, using acrylic paints provided by advisors
and potential buyers.
