BP has a proud history of operations in Australia and in 2019 the company celebrated its centenary. To mark the milestone, BP commissioned six established and emerging artists from around the country whose inspired artworks will form an exhibition that represents BP’s contribution to Australia through the decades.
Defining a new representation of traditional Indigenous art, Charmaine’s interpretation of BP’s centenary hails from the stories passed down from the Aweyle Dreamtime. The small and large semi-circular shapes of the piece represent Australia’s hills and valleys and the lines are that of dry riverbeds and streams, winding across the canvas as they do at Utopia in the Northern Territory.
There may also be an outline of a person or unusual shapes that convey Dreaming spirits that dwell in the plant and animal life.
Painter Nicole Van Dijk draws on the connection between those who live in the community of Papunya, Northern Territory and their land. BP was the first company to create a low-aromatic fuel in response to a request from the Papunya community. Her painting represents those in the community who have benefited from the introduction of the low-aromatic fuel.
