VIDEO: Aboriginal Art in the Making
Employing a straightforward photo slide-show format to quite decent effect, these Aboriginal artist profiles from the Desert Art Centre in Alice Springs, Australia are pretty engaging in their own way. The didgeridoo-based soundtrack in many of them helps.
From their YouTube page, here is one of DAC’s shorter slide-shows, documenting a work in the making by artist Doris Bush:
Very cool to see how works like hers come together from start to finish. The color choices and palette, not to mention the composition, by these painters are amazing. I hope the Centre makes the transition to video eventually, to deepen the audience’s appreciation of each artist’s creative process.
