“Modern, vibrantly colourful and expressive – the artwork in this lavishly illustrated showcase represents a new direction in Aboriginal art.  Here in 85 full-colour reproductions contemporary painters and printmakers reveal an exciting meld of cultural traditions and techniques.  The results are often stunning, always varied and innovative.
the 25 artists profiled come from all over the country.  There are the urban artists whose training in western art precedes voyages of self-discovery into traditional artforms and symbolism.  Others come from traditional communities where although the knowledge of their art has been handed down through the generations the form and content has changed dramatically.  Each shares a pride in and a commitment to their living culture.  Their art is an expression of their “Aboriginality”, as well as a means of expressing political and social issues.”
