We acknowledge the Gadigal people of the Eora Nation as the Traditional Custodians of the Country we work on today. We recognise their continuing connection to the land and waters, and thank them for protecting this coastline and its ecosystems since time immemorial. We pay our respects to Elders past and present, and extend that respect to all First Nations people present today.
In these continuing uncertain times, buying a piece of Aboriginal Art is not an indulgence, it's essential. Be it a significant work by an acclaimed artist or a simple homeware item, it will keep our artists and their commuities going, our galleries open and our culture strong.
Every painting has been hand picked by owner Nichola Dare who travels to art centres in remote Aboriginal communities to source the very best work.
Our collection is truly diverse: from the strident ochres of the Kimberley to untamed abstracts from the Western Desert: from emerging artists to some of Aboriginal art’s biggest names, who have featured in major exhibitions at national galleries.
Thank you for visiting Aboriginal Contemporary. We hope you love these beautiful and inspiring paintings as much as we do.
Aboriginal Contemporary’s new exhibition, Luurnpa (pronounced loon-pa), honours Balgo’s past, recognises its present and points to a bright future.
Works by Balgo legends, Helicopter and Christine Yunkenbarri sit alongside current senior artists, Imelda Gugaman, Patsy Mudgedell, Pauline Sunfly, as well as the younger emerging artists who will keep this richly-storied art centre at the forefront of contemporary Aboriginal art.
To quote Prof. John Carty: ‘Balgo artists don’t say this is a picture of their country, they say that the painting is their country’; and it is a great privilege for our gallery to be able to bring their Country to Sydney.
