Aboriginal Art

On Stretch Canvas

These individually painted canvases are not stretched.

There is no frame which makes it easier to post and of course, cheaper.  You may have the ability to stretch the canvas over wood but if not there are numerous placed that will do this for you.

U-Tube has some in-depth videos on the subject.
These are original canvas art pieces.  The artworks have been painted by one of our Aboriginal artists.

Dot painting

Dot painting consists of various paint colours like yellow (representing the sun), brown (the soil), red (desert sand) and white (the clouds and the sky). These are traditional Aboriginal colours. Dot paintings can be painted on anything though in aboriginal times they were painted on rocks, in caves, etc. The paintings were mostly images of animals or lakes, and the Dreamtime. Stories and legends were depicted on caves and rocks to represent the artists’ religion.

Traditional indigenous art almost always has a mythological undertone relating to the Dreamtime of indigenous Australian artists. Wenten Rubuntja, an indigenous landscape artist, says it is hard to find any art that is devoid of spiritual meaning:

Doesn’t matter what sort of painting we do in this country, it still belongs to the people, all the people. This is worship, work, culture. It’s all Dreaming. There are two ways of painting. Both ways are important because that’s culture. – source The Weekend Australian Magazine, April 2002

Story-telling and totem representation feature prominently in all forms of Aboriginal artwork. Additionally, the female form, particularly the female womb in X-ray style, features prominently in some famous sites in Arnhem Land.Indigenous Australian art – Wikipedia, the free encyclopaedia.

Samantha Daniels grew up in Warrandyte, Victoria.  Her artistic abilities were passed on by her mother and developed over the years through inspiration, of the bush landscape where she lived.  In 1991 she moved to the Gold Coast where she was given the opportunity to learn and work with other Aboriginal Artists.  Sam has continued to create her own unique contemporary style of art.
