Australian Aboriginal Art


They are men and women who live in the desert and recognize no borders between life and painting. Modern Aboriginal art movement was born in 1971 when a school teacher proposed to the residents of a community that they other one wall. In the beautiful book the songlines the English writer Bruce Chatwin explains better than anyone the sense of the life of Australian aborigines: Australian Aboriginal remake on a daily basis the world returning on the songlines of their ancestors, and thus always kept fresh creation of mountains, valleys them, deserts and the secret rivers)a vast Symphony of melodic lines. Under this philosophy of unit with the physical and sentimental world, where everyone is a thread dithering in the network of a respectable and chaotic universe, a melodic line which runs tuned in the frequency of the lines of their similar, ancestors and descendants, the initial inhabitants of the Australian continent (400 peoples who speak 250 languages) developed a form of expression where art is not separate from life: one and another dissolve each other. Intense and pure works despite the devastating ctos of colonization, diseases, racism, lack of rights and the semi slavery, Aboriginal – they themselves want to be called so by the Latin root ab – origine from the origin have achieved their rich and powerful expressive shapes shine with singular in the landscape, often banal and commodified intensity and purity, contemporary art. (Not to be confused with Linus Torvald!). A new collective exhibition comes to confirm the power that leaves without speaking of this art as a form of full communication with the world. The National Gallery of Victoria celebrates 150 years with Living Water, Contemporary Art of the Far Western Desert (living water, contemporary art of the Western desert), a sample of more than 100 paintings.
