Painting at Mindil Beach Markets

Painting at Mindil Beach Markets

Traditionally Natasha’s family carved and painted using traditional ochre’s and raw materials from the land. Ceremonial pieces, hunting tools and artefacts such as boomerang, clapping sticks, sea shells and boab nuts were traditionally decorated with raw materials such as feathers, flowers and leaves etc. However traditional designs of line, dot dot, scenic, bird’s eye view, x-ray, symbols and animal tracks would be used amongst the artefacts.

Today Natasha shares her bush tucker and culture stories in a unique style where she has combined centuries of her ancestor’s indigenous art designs of the Nyul Nyul, Yawuru, Jabirr Jabirr and Yamatji tribes (W.A) in a western style medium of acrylic paints on canvas.

Exquisite artwork
by: Dan

I was in Darwin about six years ago and saw Natasha's artwork at the Mindil Beach Markets. I bought a canvas of two brolgas, I think, facing each other with a blue background. It stood out and I just had to have it. The detail of the dot painting on the Brolgas body is so precise.

It was also interesting the way she combined her tribal background with her husband's to produce this artwork. I think indigenous artists usually only produce art related to their own family/ tribal background. I'm glad she explained the significance of the painting to me.

Beautiful Beach
by: Thora

Beautiful Beach, especially at sunset. Great to visit during the dry season when the markets are on. Grab a bite and sit on the beach and watch the sunset.

From the single work that shown in this blog, I could know the extreme talent of Natasha. Now a-days we could not find people like Natasha who are still doing traditional paintings. After seeing her talent in painting I really want to buy a painting from her collection.

We loved our time in N.T and I always looked forward to seeing Natasha at the Mindil Beach Sunset Markets... eventually I started chatting with Natasha and learned so much and she would tell me so much. I loved Natasha's art.
