Artistic Review - Influences and Inspirations. - Indigenous Australian Art

Tjutjuna, Harry.  Wangka Tjukurpa (Spiderman).  2007. 
Synthetic polymer paint on canvas. 
National Gallery of Australia, Canberra, AU. 

The artwork of the traditional people of Australia look like what resonance feels like to me.  I was able to spend a semester in Australia while I was an undergrad and I saw a lot of this work in person.  The colors and lines of their art work had a visceral effect within my body as I felt like I was resonating with the designs on the canvas.   This work informs my articulation in that I am very drawn to the way that so much story comes across through the space of  colors, lines and dots.
