The Power of Colour

For generations, Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people have used naturally occurring ochres, clays as well as charcoal as their traditional paints for use on cave walls, weapons and on themselves for ceremony. Around 50 years ago, an Aboriginal art movement saw many artists start to embrace acrylic paints as their medium of choice. In the proceeding decades, First Nations artists have experimented with many mediums and shown a range of incredible outcomes. Some opting for bright and contrasting colours resulting in some spectacular visions of Country, coupled with powerful narratives and conventional ideas about Aboriginal art.
