'Black Art' is a gift to all people. It is the epitome of a culture that always was and always will be; a means of preservation for the oldest living culture in the world.
Subtle and powerful expressions in art share the voices and stories of Aboriginal people. Something that is often celebrated and adorned by the public eye, but at times controversial. This collection encompasses ways of life, culture and a wide range of art styles that entail intricate dots and delicate paint strokes, or bold and abstract palettes of colour that as a whole do not represent division in black art, but the power of a collective voice continuous in time, place and reason.
