Wanarn Painters of Place and Time


3 in stock

This exquisite art book contains the transformative work of celebrated artists now living in an aged care facility in Ngaanyatjarra country, a remote and isolated community that is the centre of their abundant work amongst ancient Dreamings. Understanding these paintings remains obscure because they are made by people experiencing the end of their lives, detached from anxieties of everyday life, but the vibrancy of each image is startling.

This is the first of its kind in Australian Aboriginal art books: a collection dedicated to end of life vision and imagination.
