Exploitation of the Indigenous dot
thesisposted on 2007-01-01, 00:00 authored by Veronica. Addison
This thesis argues that commercial and artistic appropriation of the Indigenous 'dot' motif from the Central and Western Desert amounts to exploitation of Indigenous sacred paintings. The author produced a suite of paintings that are discussed in relation to the above concerns, highlighting areas where it is suggested that changes in discourse should occur.
