A lot of Australian aboriginal art is quite fascinating, with its own symbolic lexicon telling a history that has been passed down for tens of thousands of years. However, I have to admit, that it can feel a bit samey sometimes, at least to this white immigrant. This cannot be said for the work of John Mawurndjul. Using traditional materials, telling traditional tales, including traditional symbols, but with a unique and contemporary style, his works a quite something. Currently, on display in Sydney, I'm looking forward to his exhibition arriving in Adelaide in October at the state gallery. In the meantime have a look at a fascinating article on him in the Guardian here.
