"Dreamtime" is the essence (the beginning, middle and end and their continuation after life on earth) of the Australian Aboriginal spirituality.
I wanted to put an 'expressionist' take on their rock art. It's my own "Dreamtime" piece. My rock, my wall, my hand, my past existence that says "I was here"; physically and spiritually.
“One old man in Arnhem Land remembered being carried as a child on his father's shoulders as his father climbed up a log leaning against a rock wall. His father then sprayed his hand with red ochre against the rock, leaving a stencil he could still recognize many years later. The main function of the stencils was to record people's presence and association with a site.”
