The Wanarn Painters of Place and Time

Booktopia

Summary

This exquisite art book contains the precious story and transformative work of celebrated artists now living in an aged care facility in Ngaanyatjarra country, a remote and isolated community in the Western Desert, Central Australia, that is the centre of their abundant world amongst ancient Dreamings.

Understanding of these paintings remains obscure because they are made by people experiencing the end of their lives, detached from the anxieties of everyday life, but the vibrancy of each image is startling.

David Brooks, an anthropologist, and Darren Jorgensen, an art historian, have both worked for many years with these people from the Ngaanyatjarra lands.
