Australian Aboriginal Fine Art opens new location – gallery news
NEW YORK — Australian Aboriginal Fine Art Gallery has opened a new location at 500 Fifth Avenue, Suite 1820, in New York’s midtown retail and corporate community. Australian Aboriginal art has the longest unbroken cultural tradition in the world, with a iconography and cosmology now believed to be 120,000 years old, according to the latest carbon-dating techniques. The artists represented at the gallery produce unique landscape art in which their simple yet secretive metaphysical mapping is now very accessible to the modern eye, according to gallery officials. These artists, living in well coordinated artist communities and homelands in remote locations in the Central Australian Desert, today enjoy internationally acknowledged artistic careers, with their works collected throughout Europe, Asia and the United States by museums, galleries, collectors and buyers.
The gallery is presently showing works by top Australian indigenous artists such as Emily Kngwarreye, Kathleen Petyarre, Malcolm Jagamarra, Narputta Nangala, Abie Jangala, Marlee Naparula and Lily Karededa. “The larger gallery allows more space for the increased focus on prints as well as paintings,” said Gallery Director Suzun Bennet.
