A visit to Art Gallery WA is one of my favourite things to do in the city.. or to one of the many smaller art galleries also. The expression 'a painting is worth a thousand words' comes to mind when looking at Aboriginal art. Not always but often a painting can simply represents a scene, a landscape, a portrait etc. whereas Aboriginal art represents their life, their history. The photograph below was one that most mothers, fathers, grandparents could relate to, who hasn't told a child a story by drawing pictures in the sand.. if you embiggen the images below the artist's story becomes clear. I loved this shot..
Necessity is the mother of invention came to mind when I read the artist's statement for the piece below, parents everywhere are going to do whatever they have to do to keep their children fed and clothed. The exhibit I'll show tomorrow could not possibly be more different! Happy Thursday, take care and stay safe..
