1. The term ‘dot painting’ stems from what the Western eye sees when faced with contemporary Aboriginal acrylic paintings.
Serene living has taken this magnificent method and used it to create a range of unique., colorful and original gifts and homewares.
2. Dot paintings today are recognised globally as unique and integral to Australian Aboriginal art. On the surface the dot is simply a style of Aboriginal painting.
However, Serene Living Homeware has taken this complex method and developed their own range of gifts and homewares
The paintings and unique range of products that have been designed and handmade by SERENE LIVING'S owner together with members of a Balinese village; implement techniques of overlaying dots and superimposing patterns causing objects and shapes to merge in and out of one another. These are all highly emotive incorporating an innovative balance of traditional and modern.
The dot technique, whether as a concealer or a signifier offers a sense of movement and rhythm causing the flat canvas to sing, jump and dance with energy and life, much like the rituals which inspired them.
