Australian Aboriginal Paintings

by Jennifer Isaacs

 

Aboriginal painting has undergone a renaissance over the past two decades as artists express the strength and resilience of their ancient religious values and their deep connection to the Australian landscape itself.

This book presents an overview of traditional Aboriginal religious paintings. They are all 'from' the Dreaming, the Tjukurrpa, the Wonggar, the Creation, and express this now, in present day Australia.

Australia's Living Heritage

Arts of the Dreaming

by Jennifer Isaacs


Aboriginal art is part of a living tradition, perhaps the oldest continuous art tradition in the world. It is the visual expression of a religion which has its origins in antiquity. Serious practitioners of the ceremonies have maintained the traditional art forms throughout the deserts of Australia and in the far northern areas.

It is the classic book that first brought together the different facets of Aboriginal art, from painting, sculpture, ceremony and dance, to the making of body ornaments, carved utensils and spun or woven articles for everyday use. For Aboriginal people, therse arts are a proud heritage that expresses the Dreaming.

CLIFFORD POSSUM

Clifford Possum Tjapaltjarri was one of Australia's most distinguished painters of the late twentieth century. A pioneer of dot painting in the Western Desert of central Australia, he soon became a leader of this important movement of Indigenous art. His inherited dreaming atories, exbodied in eymmetrical designs within cultural 'maps', hold important and potent meaning for his own people but the uninitiated, equally, can feel their power and appreciate their extraordinary pictorial beauty.

 Lives of the Papunya Tula Artists  LIVES of the PAPUNYA TULA ARTISTS

 

Lives of the Papunya Tula Artists chronicles the beginnings of the Western Desert art movement and the phenomenal development of its founding art company over four decades. Through comprehensive and widely reserached biographies of more than 200 men and women the book illuminates lives balanced between first contact and international stardom, poverty and record auction prices.

 

In the early 1970s, a small group of Western Desert 'painting men' at Papunya in Central Australia seized the opportunity to experiment with new techniques and materials, producing vibrant and innovative works that give enduring expression to their powerful tjukurrpa (Dreamings).

 

Illustrated with numerous candid photographs and key artworks this boook charts the historical landscape of the Papunya Tula artists, revealing a collectie creative achievement of rare genius.

PAPUNYA

A Place Made After the Story

The Beginnings of the Western Desert Painting Movement

 

In 1971, a hopeful young art teacher drove the long, lonely road from Alice Springs to the Aboriginal outpost settlement at Papunya. His name was Geoffrey Bardon. Eighteen months later, he left Papunya, defeated by the hostile white authority. But his legacy was the beginnings of the Western Desert Painting Movement and the inspiration for this fascinating account of Bardon's experiences and the art of Papunya. What started as an exercise to encourage the Aboriginal school children to record their sand patterns and games grew to involve, at the peak of creativity, as many as 30 tribal men and elders. With Geoffrey Bardon's encouragement, these men worked to preserve their traditional Dreamings and stories in paint. The artistic movement unleashed at Papunya spread over Central Australia and has since achieved international acclaim. "Papunya: A Place Made After the Story" is a first-hand account of the artists and the works emanating from Papunya. Bardon's exquisitely recorded notes and drawings are here reproduced showing his extensive documentation of the early stages of the painting movement. This book features over 500 paintings, drawings and photographs from Bardon's personal archive. Many of the images have never been seen before and many of the paintings are now lost. The publication of this material is an unprecedented achievement, and Bardon can now be seen as the catalyst he was for a powerfully modern expression of an ancient indigenous way of seeing the world.

Papunya Tula

ART OF THE WESTERN DESERT

 

The dispossessed first Australians of the arid Central and Western Desert regions have evolved an exciting contemporary art form, using European materials but based on their own inviolate, myth logically sanctioned designs. It is an art of abstract icon in which invisible, eternal sense of land and of supernature is rendered visible.

 

It is an art in which feeling, knowing and touching country, kin and spirit world transcend the European imperative to see. This unique conceptual art form suffered a difficult birth only nineteen years ago at Papunya- a woebegone government settlement- where free nomadic peoples were brought to ‘sit down’ and be Europeanized.

 

The Papunya Painting Movement, born in the Western Desert in Northern Australia, is now one of the wonders of the modern art world - but its story is not well known.
