AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'Increasingly, Australian Indigenous art is drawing the attention of international audiences, in part because of the amazing stories the artists tell of human creativity. John Mawurndjul is one of several Aboriginal artists whose work is collected and displayed in art museums and galleries throughout the world.'

'As his work is both simultaneously grounded in his country in northern Australia, and internationally, the resulting dual perspective raises basic questions about how art should be viewed and approached in intercultural terms.' (Source: Publisher's website)
