Art, History, Place
Publisher:Working Title Press
In Art, History, Place, recognised art expert, Christine Nicholls, looks at the astonishing diversity and visual power of Indigenous Australian art today and explores the traditions and influences that have shaped its development. Her discussion ranges from the traditional work of artists from the central and western desert regions of Australia and the bark painters of Arnhem Land, to contemporary Indigenous crafts and Western-influenced paintings. Dr Nicholls reveals that while much of contemporary Indigenous art is part of an artistic movement that is more than 40 000 years old, Indigenous artists have a remarkable capacity to incorporate new media, styles and subject matter into their work. The result is a fascinating overview of a dynamic body of work.
