Golden Shadow 2018
"In my journeys around the region I have counted many Wedge Tail Eagles flying high through the skies and sitting in the tree tops. Eagles remind me of the old days in an around the Goldfields back when mining first began, and how people came from all over the world to hoping to strike their fortune. Like when a young 17 year old was lucky enough to find a Nugget back in 1931, which happened to have the look of an Eagle and weighed 1,135 oz. The nugget was the largest to be found in Western Australia at that time. So I have incorporated the nugget look into the painting as an Eagle's shadow.
I then added the technique of dots onto a big Eagle in the centre of the art piece, as I do modern contemporary style of dot paintings in my other art pieces as a hobby as I have been painting that style since learning at the early age of 10.
My whole family have had the gift of being able to paint this modern contemporary style of dot paintings. Which my Big Brother Jason Dimer continues to inspire me to continue on with, as he has also painted the town with he's awesome art works and making our family very proud in the process.”
Belinda Dimer learned the technique of dot painting at a young age and has painted as a hobby her whole life. Belinda’s art is a contemporary style reflecting her experiences growing up in and around the Goldfields region. She also paints using other styles that reflect her love of the ocean, and other themes incorporating the dot technique.
