  MY COUNTRY....

This is a creation of HELICOPTER TJUNGGARRAY, titled HELICOPTER'S COUNTRY 1996.

Art and culture.....

Composition, use of colour, choise of material and the often abstract expression in Aboriginal Art are very recognisable to us...(I wonder if that is of importance....?? is it??? tell me....)

We are also used to be moved by works of art which we may not immediatly understand the meaning and content of.......better to use your intuition and enjoy (or not) than to try to find out what the artists might have thought while working.......we shall never be able to know...and should we know?? perhaps better not.....
Feel like a child....is the best thing to do..

Aboriginal Art is closely connected to Aboriginal culture so the Museum will illustrate every exhibition with explanatory texts and background information.

Experienced guides will give regular tours in the gallery....and I strongly advise you to have such a guided tour....so you can enjoy this art to the full!
