What is Aboriginal Art?
We collaborate with non-profit community governed organizations to bring contemporary Certified original Aboriginal art to America.
Australian Aboriginal Art translates, in part, an ongoing oral culture over 40,000 years old.
Known as the Dreamtime (Jukurrpa, Songlines), Aboriginal Art invites us into a deep and rich culture.
Extra-natural beings traveled through Australia, leaving an intricate web of Dreaming tracks, creating all there is to see. Giant Birds, Rainbow Serpents, Lighting men and many other beings created the Aboriginal people's world.
These beings created the landscape and all that lives within it. They also formalized the laws of social and religious customs which remains at the core of their identity, guiding much of their daily life.
The Dreaming encompasses the past, present, and future - it is experienced. Each Aboriginal artist inherits their Dreaming throughout generations. These people have the longest continuum of existence and share with us precious and amazing art.
The dotting technique creates a sense of motion or pulsing in the artwork, with a decorative quality of sparkle and shimmer that many artists and collectors seek out. Dotted emphasizes the sacred and ceremonies to communicate and praise ancestors for creating everything there is to see.
By purchasing their art, you support their economic independence and create a source of pride for the artists.
LM FRAME & GALLERY acknowledges the traditional owners of country throughout Australia, and their continuing connection to land, sea and community. We pay our respects to them and their culture, to their elders, past, present and emerging.
