Through an exciting presentation of contemporary paintings, sculpture and bark works Aboriginal Art: Ancient Spiritual Stories explores the ancient stories and traditions of this rich and complex culture. The work from these artists, still living in remote communities of Australia, is as contemporary as it is ancient. Through intricate pattern making and potent colour combinations these artists are able not only to depict the traditions of their ancestors, but also reveal the innermost secrets of the Aboriginal culture.
Aboriginal Art: Ancient Spiritual Stories features a diverse range of contemporary art including the rare bark paintings from a group of artists in the Yirrkala region and beautifully carved Mimih Spirit sculptures, often considered as having taught people how to survive in the harsh, remote, Australian landscape.
