Description - Aboriginal Art by Wally Caruana
From all parts of the continent, indigenous Australian artists have built on traditions stretching back 50,000 years, working in a variety of contexts from the sacred and secret realm of ceremony to more public spheres. Work across all media is included, from painting, sculpture, engraving, constructions and weaving to photography, printmaking and textile design.
The story of Aboriginal art is brought into the 21st century in this revised and expanded third edition with a new chapter that maps the latest developments across each of Australia's regions. The impact of urban living, the growth of local art centres that support the work of indigenous artists, and the rise of women artists all testify to Aboriginal art's continued dynamism and vitality.
