Dreamings The Art of Aboriginal AustraliaIn collaboration with a major exhibition of Aboriginal art this book provides a compl With over 300 illustrations and 155 color plates coupled with in depth analysis of Australian history and culture this book provides an excellent overview of Aboriginal art There are great examples of bark paintings sculptures and shields in addition to the recent acrylic paintingsThe essays by five different authorscurators take a respectful appreciative and knowledgeable look at the worlds oldest art and some of the artists who are still following its imperatives Though as Peter Sutton explains it is not so much art as it is a religion made visible The paintings are also living maps of the natural and psychic world of the people who made and continue to make them There are many fine samplings included here both contemporary and historicalPeter Sutton starts with an explanation of the power filled ground of existence the Dreaming or the Dreamtime and moves on to define the Dreamings who are the Ancestral Beings who inhabit both our present world and the Dreamtime The Dreamings are known by their names and they are represented by particular sets of symbols and signs and patterns Thus each painting is a story to be read It is a mythology and a history of the Ancestral Beings their gifts their travels and their experiences Well sort of It's complicated than that but the authors of these essays dive into the subject and try to clarify it for non anthropologists What needs no clarification is the beauty of the paintings themselves; they communicate directly with their vibrant colors energetic forms and sure lines even if one doesn't know the esoteric significance of these elementsThis book came out in 1988 when this art was just beginning to find an appreciative audience here in the US There may have been advances in the evolution of the art and in photographic reproduction since then but this book remains a sound introduction to the Australian landscape and mythology and the fine artists who express both so vividly
