As a self-taught Aboriginal (Palawa/Tasmania) artist, I have worked on refining a dot-only style of painting. As a result even a 60cm x 60cm piece will consist of well in excess of 30,000 dots and take several weeks to complete. I have forgone the use of canvas, opting instead for Atelier acrylic paint on carefully prepared boards simply due to the fact that I am able to achieve more precisely circular dots.
Most of my pieces are politically and/or socially motivated and messaged, ensuring I remain true to my personal beliefs.
Interestingly, as I fill out this form, the prompt is asking me to detail my qualifications. Simple... none whatsoever. Despite being sent to an exclusive private school in Sydney during the seventies and eighties, I dropped out at 16 and joined the Army on my 17th birthday. How's that for qualifications? :-)
