Aboriginal art, when it is viewed at its most basic level, can be a revelation in design and structure. Many leading Aboriginal artists have created paintings in black and white, where the graphic qualities of their artworks are starkly beautiful and obvious. These patterns may be renderings of landscapes – sandhills, waterholes, journey lines – or other aspects of the natural world. By refining the design down to its dominant parts, the artist makes a strong statement about the singular experience of the subject they are painting.

Many Aboriginal artists have made their reputations in part based on the powerful use of black and white in their paintings. This collection is aimed at providing a quick overview of some of the most impressive works available in the gallery. Selected artists include Lily Kelly Napangardi, Ronnie Tjampitjinpa, Wentja Napaltjarri, Ningura Napurrula, Anna Petyarre, Eva Nelson Napaltjarri, Margaret Lewis Napangardi, Abie Loy Kemarre, Kerry Madawyn McCarthy, Elsie Napanangka Granites and Mitjili Napurrula. Aboriginal art status – Highly regarded artists.
