Noongar artist Yondee Shane Hansen remembers when he began painting: “I started painting with house paints that we found on the rubbish tip. That was at the Reserve at Narrogin. I started drawing with charcoal, drawing on the light grey logs that had no bark. I love the simplicity of black and white, the strength. The black is fire, the white is the tree. From childhood, that’s why I mostly paint black and white paintings.”

“Later on when we moved to the outskirts of Perth, to Swan View, we would walk down to the river, and light fires along the side of the river, and collect paper bark. Art was all around me – in the paddocks when the flowers came, in the fields and the crops, along the rivers and around the rocks.”

“We moved around, working on the land and hunting. My grandmother spoke full Noongar language. My Grandfather sang Noongar songs. As a child, Yondee learnt his grandfather’s ground paintings and wishes to continue these. He feels that the translation of them through his own paintings brings them to new audiences. The artist’s bush name, Yondee, means Black Goanna.

Yondee Shane Hansen has painted with the Campfire group of Aboriginal artists in Brisbane as well as exhibiting his work in galleries in Western Australia, NSW, Queensland, and overseas in USA and Ireland.
