"L’Art des Hommes de Yuendumu"

Solenne Ducos-Lamotte IDAIA Galerie Kartin Carton Versailles
Last Saturday, VDP attended  a conference (part of it because she had to rush somewhere else) by Solenne Ducos-Lamotte, director of IDAIA (International Development for Australian Indigenous Art), which was held at one of the Antiques District's art galleries, galerie Karin Carton. The conference complements the current exhibition (until 18 December) of Aboriginal art by the people of the Yuendumu aboriginal community, in the heart of the central Australian desert. Amongst others, the gallery features works by now deceased Paddy Japaljarri Sims, Paddy Japaljarri Stewart, Shorty Jangala Robertson and Paddy Japanangka Lewis, as well as young artists such as Otto Jungarrayi Sims and Patrick Japangardi Williams. Absolutely fascinating history, traditions and superb paintings! VDP has loved Aboriginal art for a long time now. What about you?

Samedi dernier, VDP a assisté à la conférence de Solenne Ducos-Lamotte, directrice d'IDAIA (en fait une partie seulement de la conférence parce qu'elle avait d'autres obligations) qui se tenait à la galerie Karin Carton dans le quartier de la Geôle (des antiquaires). La conférence est venue compléter l'exposition en cours (jusqu'au 18 décembre) d'artistes passés et présents de la communauté aborigène historique de Yuendumu, située au cœur du désert central australien. Histoire, traditions, peintures superbes, n'hésitez pas à aller y faire un tour ! Plus d'infos soit sur le site de l'IDAIA, soit directement à la galerie Karin Carton ! VDP aime beaucoup et depuis fort longtemps l'art aborigène, et vous ?

Love those vibrant yellows!

I love it too! There are some wonderful pieces here, so expressive and such vibrancy of colour. I was lucky enough to spend a day or two with an Aboriginal artist in Australia a few years ago, it was quite an experience....

I have a friend who travels to Australia often and who has a very extensive collection of Aboriginal art with many significant pieces and they are so fabulous! I'm always blown away by them.

These are simply dazzling, VDP. Thanks for showing them to us.

I do like Aboriginal art very much Ciel, we have many venues where original work can be shown. I always think of it as the original pointillism :)

Gorgeous photos of these brilliant works of art. I love Aboriginal art too. There are so many similarities between native art from all over the world.

Très beau et à force d'admirer ces œuvres aborigènes on finit par reconnaître certaines constances. C'est beau!

This is like medicine on a grey, wet and windy Thursday.... here up in the north of Europe.
Wonderful colourful artistic work!
Thanks for sharing.
