Hardcover. First Edition. No Boundaries: Aboriginal Australian Contemporary Abstract Painting, 1st edition published by Prestel.Clean pages, tight binding, clean boards, original dust jacket, illustrated dust jacket over red cloth boardsThis exceptionally illustrated book presents the work of nine contemporary Aboriginal abstract painters, and includes a series of essays which bring together art history, anthropology, and new interpretations of one of the most dynamic painting movements of recent times. Towards the turn of the 20th century, Australian Aboriginal art went through a moment of extraordinary experimentation and innovation. Across Australia, Aboriginal artists moved away from traditional figurative imagery towards dynamic and individual abstract styles. This book examines the work of nine artists who were at the forefront of this movement. These artists transformed their traditional practices and lore into dynamic contemporary artworks. Each of these artists is represented in depth, with stunning reproductions and thoughtful analysis by art historians, curators, critics, and anthropologists. These writings and illustrations introduce readers to the ways contemporary Aboriginal artists are forging a distinctive new path, creating some of the finest abstract paintings of our time. Clean pages, tight binding, clear illustrated dust jacket over red.
