Artist: Shane Kooka
The mark making within the artwork created by Shane Kooka, pays tribute to the ochre and body paint used traditionally and in contemporary dance practices.
Body painting and mark marking is a traditional art form, that continues to hold deep spiritual significance and importance to first nations people.
Body markings are symbolic of identity and were used traditionally to showcase stories, the persons tribe, totems, connection to their ancestors and family groups.
Capturing the abstract contemporary markings created by my hands and then transforming them into a digital format, gives the artwork an opportunity to see no boundaries in which the markings can be placed.
My first experience connecting to my culture was through tradition dance before moving onto mark marking and art. My goal with this design, to recreate a contemporary style of mark making, was to give the players a sense of what it feels like to be painted up before a big dance, celebration, ceremony or going into battle.
