Overview

15 Aboriginal artists have focused on the color blue in this collection of paintings that invokes stories of water, sky, seasons and clouds. 

Sometimes used to signify water and aspects of the ether – wind, smoke, clouds, night skies – blue becomes a more familiar colour in the work of these Aboriginal artists. On the dry Australian continent blue holds the promise of coolness and moisture, the chance for life to recover and regenerate. It is a colour that sits around the earth rather than in it, contrasting to the deep orange oxide of the land. Blue is a contrast in the paintings as well, freed briefly from the palette of earth pigments that raises the dominant voice of the land. Blue is a respite from the known physical world of the desert.
