For many Indigenous Australians, the act of painting is a kind of personal religious communion between the artist and the ancestral creation beings that made the country. In Painting the Land Story, Luke Taylor, Howard Morphy, Kim Akerman, Ute Eickelkamp, Brenda Croft and Mary Bani variously explore Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander art from traditional and contemporary perspectives. Their essays look at art as an expression of community identity, interrogate the context of traditional and contemporary environments in which art is created and reveal the sense of ancestral and cultural precedent, which continues to inform and inspire all forms of artistic expression.
