Australian Aboriginal Art

Australian Aboriginal art has always been a huge inspiration in my abstract artwork. I love indigenous art from cultures all over the world, but Aboriginal art always held a certain attraction for me – the colors, the patterns, and the symbolism are all so imbued with meaning. Aboriginal art in its purest form is not separate from daily life – it is part of it, intricately interwoven with their belief system.

A few days ago I had the joy of viewing a collection of Australian Aboriginal art paintings on permanent display at the National Gallery of Victoria in Melbourne, Australia. Seeing these works in person is a moving experience because the artworks function on a level that goes far beyond the visual.
