Australian Aboriginal artists create works about ‘Country’ the land, sea and sky, flora and fauna in their world. With over 150 different language groups across the most remote areas of the vast Australian continent, home is the natural world that surrounds them. Artists paint their stories based around ancient traditions that make up the 65,000 year old culture. These selected artists demonstrate a small example of the Aboriginal visual language that helps to pass on their culture to younger generations.

The exhibition includes contemporary painting, sculpture, drawing, installation and digital media. From literal interpretations such as the mapping of brainwaves and the use of found materials, to ideas of animism and the creation of metaphysical spaces, the artworks offer alternative routes into defining our world.
