  2. 2. Central (desert) Art FEATURES:  Symbols  Dots  Aerial View  Landscape  Traditionally drawn in the sand and for body adornment
  3. 3. Northern Art FEATURES  Real objects & figures (not symbols)  X-Ray drawings  Lines & cross-hatching  “Flat” drawings  Earthy colours  Painted on bark
  4. 4. Contemporary (modern)Aboriginal Art  Aboriginal artists of today combine traditional painting techniques with modern themes, images and colours.
  5. 5.  Today, many Aboriginal artists incorporate dot painting into their art work. Also, with the availability of acrylic paints, the traditional use of ochre to make their paint, which gave the Aboriginal dot painting and art work their ‘earthy’ colours, has given way to more contemporary and bright colours, as used by Bronwyn Bancroft in a lot of her book illustrations.

  10. 10. The emergence of “dot” paintings
  11. 11. Papunya Tula  Traditional Aboriginal dot painting is an Aboriginal art form that was prominent in the Central Western parts of Australia. The dot painting style itself, originated from the Papunya art movement in the 1970’s. Papunya Tula artists used a process of drawings in the sand to be used in spiritual ceremonies. In such rituals the soil would be smoothed over and used like a ‘canvas’ to represent sacred designs, replicate movements of ancestral beings upon earth. These Dreaming designs were outlined with dancing circles and were often surrounded with a mass of dots. Afterward the imprinted earth would be smoothed over, painted bodies rubbed away, so as to hide the sacred secrets which had taken place.
