Nikki Carabetta-Baugh considers herself an Aboriginal urban artist, combining traditional dot painting techniques with contemporary methods and mediums – ‘this is a reflection of how my culture has evolved and adapted itself to my modern urban lifestyle, far removed from the way I grew up. It is the combination of the two that makes my work unique. Whilst there are Dreaming stories involving the symbols, I use I have not employed all of them in my artwork. My artwork reflects my love and respect for ‘country’ and is an affirmation of my connection to culture and country.’
This exhibition celebrates NAIDOC Week (7-14 July 2019), with the theme VOICE. TREATY. TRUTH. ‘Let’s work together for a shared future.
