$19.95

A revised and expanded third edition, this elegantly compact publication is an exceptional introduction to the full diversity of Aboriginal Art. It brings together Indigenous artists from all parts of the continent that have built traditions spanning 50 000 years in a variety of contexts and mediums from: painting, sculpture, engraving, constructions and weaving, photography, printmaking and textile design. A specialist in the field of Indigenous Art, Caruana has included an additional chapter to highlight Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Art in the 21st Century. It maps the latest developments across each of Australia’s geographic regions as well as the impact of urban living, the growth of local art centres that support the world of Indigenous artists, and the rise of women artists that testify to the continued dynamism and vitality of Indigenous art. With concise and eloquent text, this edition contains magnificent and colourful reproductions from prominent Indigenous artists including: Kitty Kantilla, Clifford Possum, Ken Thaiday Senior, Richard Bell and Rover Thomas to name a few.
