Indigenous Australian art for discerning collectors







In Emily, the stylistic changes of recent aboriginal art history coalesced and were transformed in looser constructions and intensely vibrant colours. From a multitude of perspectives, they appeared nothing like the Western and Central Desert counterparts. Depicting the flowers, roots, dust and summer rains of her country, the translucent colours built up with layered touches of paint to create an illusion of depth and movement. Emily’s work combined the decorative, almost structured compositions of batik with the overall effect of Western abstraction and the results were neither representational or iconographic. For all these reasons, they nudged the boundaries that catapulted Aboriginal painting into the contemporary art sphere, and their sales indicated the enthusiastic acceptance of a format that was both familiar and other: the quintessential definition of modernism.
