Body Painting 2 Black

Dreamtime:

Aboriginal Culture is in existence for many thousands of years. Aborigines portray their ancient culture and spiritual significance by painting their bodies with designs and motifs. These motifs explain their family group, tribe, dreaming, totems etc. and vary by tribes and country (geographical location).

In the Aboriginal Culture, rituals and ceremonies are a constant source for everyone in the community to gather and celebrate the occasion. While doing so, the artists (dancers) paint their bodies with the theme of the ritual with various motifs and designs. There are strict regulations on how the artists are to paint their bodies based on their tribe and country. They generally paint the ritual designs on their bodies with clay, ochre, pink, red, yellow and white. Some of these rituals last for days. So, they use paints mixed with animal fats so that the paints stay longer.

Anna Pitjara is from Utopia region of Central Australia. She belongs to the Petyarre / Pitjara family and speaks Anmatyerre language. Her dreamings mainly involve Body Painting, Bush Yam, Yam Seeds, Sandhill etc

DREAMTIME RIVERBED BLACK

Dreamtime: Aboriginals have been living in Australia for around 60,000 years. Australia being a driest continent, they have been mostly dependent on the creeks or rivers for their needs. They have an enormous amount of knowledge of managing water resources within Australian landscape. They remember the river by telling stories, singing songs, visiting dry riverbeds or depicting pictures of the area/place on the canvas, caves etc.

Anna Pitjara is an experienced and well-known artist. She expressed her unique memory of the dry river bed on canvas. In this beautiful design, Anna skilfully depicts the dry river bed where people are walking, discussing how to maintain the river bed for future generations to come.

LAND OF UTOPIA BLACK

Dreamtime:

Utopia region of Australia is the home to many Aboriginals covering over 3500 sq.km with the Sandover River in the vicinity. A few of them now live in the metro area of Alice Springs and others in the camping sites out in the bush. They prefer living close to the bush, taking care of their land (country). The two main languages spoken in this area are Alyawarr and Anmatyerre.
The name Utopia (Uturupa), means ‘Big Sand Hill’, a region in the northwest of Central Australia. It is an amalgamation of several large and small communities. There are only a few schools, grocery supply stores, hospitals etc. in the remote areas of Utopia. Alice Springs, the nearest town is the best place for one-stop shopping. Highways, including unsigned roads, mud roads to local communities are a rich source of red-dirt as seen in the central deserts of Australia. Often this bigger picture is referred to Sandhills by the Aboriginal artists.

Dreamtime:

Water was a most-value commodity to the Aboriginals of Northern Terriotory. This may be the reason for their living near the creeks. When the water in the creek dries up, they could still get water by digging down the soft bed of the creek. They scooped out the first lot of water (not suitable for drinking), and then clear drinkable water flows back into the hole. Aboriginal people were always looking for waterholes where ever they went. Anna Pitjara is a very well-known artist. Her depiction of waterholes in dried creek or in the forest beds is vibrant and colorful. She is a top brand artist and her artworks are displayed in national & state art gallery, private collections and commercial Aboriginal art galleries.state art gallery, private collections and commercial Aboriginal art galleries.
