The Aboriginals are the original people of Australia, one of the oldest "primitive societies" in the world.
They have an extremely strong bond with the country they live in, actually with Mother Earth.
Their history tells about their mythological ancestors who moulded the country.
The knowledge of this mythology and the rituals are called "DREAMINGS" .
These DREAMINGS are passed down from generation to generation, by cremonies, stories, songs...and sand-drawings..
(sand-drawings are travels)
Australia is a huge continent and there are many tribes with their own languages and thus their own style.
GABRIELLE PIZZI COLLECTION IN MELBOURNE.
She is world-famous GABRIELLE PIZZA's private collection of Aboriginal Art.
Her gallery in Melbourne is prominent..
For a number of years already Gabrielle Pizzi has devoted herself to enhance the acquaintance with the Aboriginal Art in EUROPE.
The enormous measures of many paintings and the often very colourful motives are overwhelming.
You must take in consideration that they are all painted while the artist is sitting on the floor and that they never make sketches in preparations....
They just sit down and start painting...till it is finished!
The paintings contain lots of practical information and secret knowledge from the DREAMTIME
Temporary Aboriginal Art was born in 1971 in the remote desert society PAPUNYA in Central Australia and developed to become one of the most remarkable art-movements of the 20th Century!
The huge collection from the Australian Desert Area, which the Museum owns was quite recently completed in a special way with the works of DESERT ART from Gabrielle Pizzi, to form together a temporary exhibition and an excellent one it was!
One of the highlights was the work WATER DREAMING painted by WALTHER TJAMPITJINPA (1972).
This work was created almost at the start of the movement.
