CROSS-CULTURAL PROJECTS - fine art - fine craft - ethical trade
We work with traditional artisans from remote regions in Kashmir, Peru, West Bengal, Uttar Pradesh and Nepal (Tibetan refugees).
We work with Australian Aboriginal artists from remote communities across Australia, from Arnhem Land to Central and the Western Desert regions, from rural locations and from cities. Artists own the images used and it is up to them how they can be used.
Artists benefit from royalties paid to them on a monthly basis. Art centres benefit from a substantial profit share paid on their investments.
Artisans benefit by having culturally appropriate opportunities, they are able to supplement rural income by practising age-old traditions in their own homes located in remote beautiful clean villages.
Tote Bag Leather Trimmed-DYM923
This design is from an original painting of Damien’s country, Mt. Liebig, west of Papunya. Damien’s great grandfather and his family are travelling through the desert towards Kintore, collecting food. In the bottom right-hand corner the sun is setting over a hillside. The family stops to camp at different places along the way. The red concentric circles are dry rock holes, and the blue and white concentric circles represent rock holes that are filled with clean water, that flows on into the creek. The red stripes coming out of the centre of the right-hand side of the painting lead to one of these waterholes these are the tracks of the family walking through the sand. In this painting, you can also see spinifex bushes (the yellow star-like symbols), and dry claypans with cracks in the earth.
