24" x 16"
Aboriginal art dot
painting, acrylic on canvas, SNAKE
Aboriginal desert techniques,
events and places in the Arrernte cosmology, which
are known only to senior male members
of the clan.
Mervyn Rubuntja was born at Telegraph Station in Alice Springs, NT in 1958. Mervyn's father, Wenten Rubuntja,
a major figure in Aboriginal art
and law, started painting in the
representational style of Albert
Namatjira, evolving to more traditional dot painting style.
Mervyn, on the other hand has
moved in the reverse direction,
evolving from traditional dot style
to representational landscape style of the Hermannsberg School.
This is an earlier work, from Mervyn's dot painting period.
