Aboriginal Art - Ninuku Artist

I love Aboriginal art, and have for some time so it's a wonder I only have one small piece in my home. I was inspired to show you some photos after Viv from ish and chi showed us photos of her new Aboriginal painting by Jeannie Mills Pwerl. What strikes me about Aboriginal paintings is the strong use of colour such as pinks and oranges. This painting is by Regina Ngamina Davidson, displaying rockhole's from Regina's grandmother's country.

This is definitely my style of Aboriginal art - the dots and the bright colours. I love the orange, the white and the hint of grey coming through really makes the orange 'pop'. I just wish I had more!
