Ochre is a very soft rock used by civilisations for millennia. Australia has the oldest known burials using ochre, oldest artefacts with ochre and oldest paintings with ochre..yet the experts say we Aboriginees migrated from Aarfrika mon. Our own elders say the arrows are pointing the wrong way and that Aborigines have always been here in Australia and that other peoples migrated from here....
The stencils I use are boomerangs, hands, nets, and cut outs.
Red yellow and white ochre on black canvas.
The dancers danced the story as I painted the story in the background.
Stencil art is made by putting a mixture of ochre and water in your mouth and spraying it in a controlled manner. It's actually quite easy and makes for a stunning demonstration....!...;)
Ochre is our oldest way of expressing dreams and aspirations in art.
Yes I'm spitting it..traditional stencil art is done that way...ooohwahh
