Description - Our Way: The Lockhart River Art Gang by Sally Butler
Our Way- Contemporary Aboriginal Art from Lockhart River introduces the unique and stunning art of a group of young Aboriginal artists from far north Queensland's Lockhart River community. Lockhart River is Australia's only remote youth-driven Aboriginal art initiative, and the rise to national and international recognition of a number of these artists is a unique and remarkable chapter in Australia's art history. Their art is about 'Sandbeach' culture and community and its spectacular wilderness environment in Cape York Peninsula. But it is also a worldly art of the twenty-first century that shows the global scope of Aboriginal cultural expression today. Lockhart River art is always about the community, but each artist approaches this communal identity in distinctive and innovative ways. Their art is a beguiling insight into how individuality and community co-exist in the contemporary life of Aboriginal people. Our Way brings all of this extraordinary art together in the one place for the first time.
