Bantimita – Message Stick

This artwork is symbolic of Aboriginal message sticks, depicted by the horizontal carved lines within the work. Messages were painted and inscribed on a stick, which was then transported by hand. Typical messages inscribed on the stick by painting, carving or burning would be announcements of ceremonies, disputes, invitations, warnings, meetings, events and happenings.

About Saretta:
My name is Saretta Fielding and I am a Wonaruah woman.
I was born in Sydney to an Aboriginal father of the Wonaruah people and a European mother. I have enjoyed the benefit of growing up within a large and close knit extended family and much of my work is influenced by family connection and relationships.
I consider Lake Macquarie my home and am greatly influenced by the beauty of this country in my Artwork.
Growing up alongside Lake Macquarie, surrounded by the bush lands of the Watagan Mountains and the wonderful beaches of our coastline has given me the best nature has to offer.
A pioneering member of Yarnteen, I was appointed to the role of Chief Executive Officer in 2009, prior to this I held senior management positions in both the Awabakal Aboriginal Co-operative and Yarnteen College, as well as playing an active role as a business partner in a family business. In 2010 I launched my art business, to accommodate the commercial success of my artwork.
I am passionate and committed to seeing the Aboriginal community advance towards economic and social inclusion. I believe that through unity, vision and planning, we can achieve a sustainable future that embraces reconciliation and is rich in economic opportunity.
I have always painted, drawn and experimented in a variety of art mediums, as art has long been a passion for me. I love the challenge of conveying to others, through art, how I am influenced by people, life experiences and natures beauty.
Reflective in style to many traditional artworks found throughout the Hunter Region and Wonaruah country, my artworks are connected to country in style and design through the use of a sand based medium. The highly textured pieces embody the age old sandstone engraved artworks created by our ancestors and add a whole new dimension to the works.
