New Pieces by Aboriginal Artists

Aboriginal art sales have been brisk, and we’ve successfully secured 10 wonderful new pieces by our clients favourite artists.  They have arrived and are currently being stretched so here is a sneek peak. They will be back in the Gallery next week for personal viewing.

 

Gloria Petyarre - Bush Medicine Leaves

Gloria’s iconic Bush Medicine Leaves is rendered in traditional greens and yellow and the stunning movement and meticulous execution that is Gloria’s trademark is clearly evident.

The work  by Sarrita and Tarisse King is a fantastic example of this very hard to find collaborative painting – a perfect size and beautifully rendered in black and white.

This is only the second collaborative work we have been able to secure, but we think it was worth the wait.   The painting depicts Language of Earth by Sarrita (the strong rectangular iconography) and My Country by Tarisse (which employs the more circular and flowing symbols).  The red line separating the two parts of the work, represents a river in both real and metaphoric terms.  On the one hand it is as it appears in the land, and on the other hand as it might represent the ebb and flow of life and communication. The overall feeling conveyed by the work is one of a contemporary and very relevant strength and beauty, much like the two wonderful artists who painted it.

Ronnie Tjampitjinpa is a legendary artist and we are lucky to have one of his works in the gallery. Tangari is his most famous dreaming stories and it is beautifully executed. Ronnie is questionnably the most well regarded man in Aboriginal art today and every Aboriginal art collection should feature one of his works.
