Dreamtime stories in the artwork

Stretching back millennia, the Dreamtime stories represent the origins of humanity, animals the world, telling the viewer how the earth and land intersects with the sacred world – how both influence each other. Passed along through the generations with the spoken word, the stores speak of survival, and are often a grim overview of the world.

Our artists

We are fortunate to be positioned in an area of Darwin that is in close proximity to several key Indigenous art sites. As such, we are able to see artists at work as they create dramatically rich visual stories. Their entire artistic practice is informed by the forty thousand year Dreamtime histories and the diverse stories that have come out of the peoples of our great land.

Authentic artwork techniques

Talented in their form and processes, the artists use traditional symbols and colours to tell the story. Their dot paintings are drawn from an ancient artwork style, displaying a connection to the stories of the earth and ethereal worlds. Each presents their own unique take on the style, with some choosing to place tiny, precise dots on the canvas, and others representing their message with a wave of large dots. Generally, older artists choose to follow the less formulaic style, expressing themselves

Traditionally, the artists would use ochre, a rich clay material taken from the earth. In the reds, browns and blacks taken from the ground of the desert, the artists would create scenes representative of nature. Today, however, the artists tend towards acrylic-based paints, which offer them a wider scope of colours through which to represent their messages.
