‘Some people think Oh! Only dot painting really has meaning. Landscape is only pretty coloured rocks and trees. We only want dot paintings.
But these hills have meaning and we have stories too, the landscape artists. We also talk about where the different Dreamings come from, and where they meet up and so on.
We have two ways of painting: sand painting and landscapes. For us they both have the same Dreaming story. The landscape painting we do, it shows the country. We don’t just paint anything, that’s not our way. We are inspired by the country and the Dreaming as we paint.’
Join Adrian Newstead as he delves into the history of Albert Namatjirra and the entire Hermannsburg School of artists. Expand your knowledge about this fascinating area of Australian art history. Drinks and nibbles will be served throughout the day.
