Australia’s Indigenous Culture has been the melting pot for one of the world’s most distinct and unique artforms. Born from thousands of years of connection to Country and the ceremonies that were an integral part of their spirituality and the law, the first Australians have developed styles telling of their life, land and custodianship of their stories and Dreaming.
This month, Nissarana Galleries releases its online catalogue of Aboriginal art in celebration of NAIDOC Week in November. The catalogue contains a superb collection of paintings from Indigenous artists that have become primary names associated with the Aboriginal art movement of the Central Desert. These artists have works that are held in major collections throughout the world and nearly all national galleries in Australia.
Also included are numerous works by acclaimed contemporary Indigenous artists that connect with their Culture and ancestry through art – among them a large number of acclaimed female artists. These award-winning artists and many more are represented in this catalogue, including Anna Price Petyarre, Gloria Petyarre, Karen Bird Ngale, Bronwyn Bancroft, Bianca Gardiner-Dodd, Phyllis Donegan, Brennan Cox, Clarise Namijimpa Poulson, Margaret Scobie, Jeannie Petyarre, Lindsay Bird Mpetyane, Jeannie Mills Pwerle, Polly Antwerkerty, Jacinta Hayes, Patricia Kamara, Polly Ngale, Rosemary Egan Nampijinpa, Tommy Cook, Chad Briggs, Tony Wilson, Winston Walford, Anthony Walker, Jandamarra Cadd, and Jirri Jirri.
