My Country Utopia Black by Steve Pitjara
Australia is the place of landscapes and to Australian Aboriginal people; land is very close to their heart. According to ‘Aboriginal Mythology’, ‘Dreamtime’ is the time when forefathers sprung up from underneath the soil and started creating almost everything what their future generations would require.
In this artwork, Stephen depicted his land of Utopia with dots, lines and motif’s representing the Dreamtime creation of seeds, trees, mountains, landscapes etc. which plays a key role in the Australian fauna and flora, nature and spirituality and indigenous development.
