Timeless: Bark Paintings from Arnhem Land

May 12 – August 9, 2009
Timeless: Bark Paintings from Arnhem Land included work from the major art-producing communities throughout Australia’s north. Painted in natural ochres and pigments on eucalyptus bark, these works showed the distinctive styles of northeast, central and western Arnhem Land artists. Pairs of paintings by the masters of bark art show continuity over time in both subject matter and style. Featured artists included Yirawala (Gunwinggu), John Mawurndjul (Kuninjku) and Narritjin Maymuru (Yolngu).
