TUESDAY-5th June - Message Stick and World Environment Day


Did you happen to watch "Message Stick" on ABC TV last night? Why such a thought-provoking programme is on at 6pm, on a Monday evening, is beyond me. But I digress.....

"Message Stick" looks at Aboriginal Australia, and usually has an artistic or cultural perspective. Last night, they showed a film, 'The French Connection', about how the work of several indiginous artists is being featured in a new museum in Paris, the Musee du quai Branly.The film prompted me to reflect on what it actually is that draws me so strongly to the way Aboriginal artists paint their landscape. In a small way, I guess it's called envy...yes, I envy the spiritual connection that Aboriginal artists have with their country, that enables them to represent their country with such deep knowledge and understanding. It allows them to show more than just a pictoral or literal representation of their country. Yes, I think that's what it is.

The picture above shows the work of John Mawurndjul.

Hey, thanks for your comment on my blog! I would to be in Paris (my home beloved city) to see this exposition, I don't know enough about Aboriginal artworks!
Actually it is raining right now in Brisbane so that's cool!

Tks for visiting Richmond upon Thames.

I liked your post on the Aborigine art...I wonder if the exhibit will come to London?

It's good to see plenty of "re-evaluation" of the aborigine situation.
