I will always be in awe of good Aboriginal Art, and what a wealth of it there is! A good example is the amazing art of the Tjungu Palya Artists.

Here are some examples of visual references that I have collected from work for my own education, in this case to learn about how they build up the impression of depth in the painted surface, normally with a dark, sometimes earth-coloured, background.  These images were taken at the National Galleries of Victoria, and of Australia (in Canberra). The artists are too numerous to list as they often paint in groups, but I’m including these images here with sincere appreciation for their unique work, their unique use of colour and brushwork, and of course the unique depth of meaning, drawn from their personal and cultural histories, in the works.
