azeza possum is one young lady to remember. she is a light of inspiration to many young aboriginal artists of her generation to aspire to keep the dreamings and ancestral heritage of their people alive. she and her sisters khatija and chelsea are taking the world by storm with their enormous fortitude, talent and passion.
the women’s dreaming paintings by azeza depicts women’s ceremonial sites surrounding tjukurla in the western desert of central australia – traditional homelands to the artist’s family. ceremonial sites carry deep spiritual meaning and it is where the women narrate their sacred aboriginal dreamtime stories, through song lines, dance cycles and body paint.
this painting has many secret and sacred landmarks and iconography but also includes the important fire, bush tucker and waterholes that are imperative to the women as the ceremonies can last for over a week. though primarily a landscape painting azeza has surpassed the basic stories and landmarks and has expanded this art of body painting and ceremonial themes into a classic contemporary composition, using modern acrylic paints.
