Fine Art Paintings
All works are acrylic on canvas

 
 
Springtime

“Springtime” – 2007
Catalogue:BDU1C
(65cm x 94cm) Unframed
AUD $3,500.00 (includes delivery)

“After storms have swept across the desert country, vibrant native lilies and hibiscus that are medicinal plants to Aboriginal peoples, display their intrinsic beauty. And the lively, refreshed mood invites butterflies and dragonflies to dance on the air and investigate nature’s newest blooms.”

   
 
Green Sea Turtle

 “Green Sea Turtle” – 2006
Catalogue:BDU2C
(62cm x 81cm) Framed
AUD $3,200.00 (includes delivery)

“A mother of the sea secures life for the next generation of her species on a tropical beach in northern Australia. Like mothers, grandmothers and great grandmothers, her Green Sea Turtle sisters have been coming ashore for centuries. Finest dots celebrate this precious cycle and symbolise millions of grains of sand.”

   
 
Crocodile Hunt

   
 “Crocodile Hunt” – 2007
Catalogue:BDU3C 
 (71cm x 110cm) Framed
   AUD $4,700.00 (includes delivery)

“On the hunt for crocodile eggs a father with fishing spear guides his son who carries an empty dilly bag. Keeping one eye out for cruising crocodiles they wade through warm, northern Australian waters seeking their special food. In harmony with ‘country’, its plants and animals, the Aboriginal men are continuing a tradition of hunting handed down over thousands of years.”

 

   

   

 
Corroboree

 “Corroboree” – 2007
    Catalogue:BDU4C
 Stretched Canvas - Pair
  (40cm x 122cm each)
AUD $4,100.00 (includes delivery)

“Male and female Mimi Spirits are dancing and chanting to bring rain. With strong clap-stick rhythms, traditional songs sweep across parched brown earth. In the world’s driest continent rain dances have been performed many times before, but when will the ancient song-cycle break the long drought?”

   
 

Top Floor Gallery
Two exceptional works are available:


 

The Last Supper"The Last Supper" – 2006 Catalogue:BDU5C
(78cm x 115cm) Framed & Perspex
AUD $22,500.00 (includes delivery)


 


“Tall and elegant Mimi spirits take the places of Jesus and his disciples at the most famous meal in religious history. Under vast Dreamtime skies this story is dramatically re-interpreted by an artistic culture much, much older. Christianity came to Australia’s Aboriginal peoples in the nineteenth century and its impact was broad and profound. With outstanding originality this fusion of traditions celebrates a momentous occasion.” 

 

 
Crucifixion

"Crucifixion” – 2006
Catalogue:BDU6C
(85cm x 128cm) Framed & Perspex 
AUD $22,500.00 (includes delivery)

“Intense, outback sky overlooks an earth-shattering event.
In this stunning interpretation, the slender figure of a Mimi spirit in the role of Jesus is nailed to a cross on a desolate hill. Created with breath-taking dot and line techniques the Aboriginal and Christian stories are linked because Aboriginal peoples were also crucified on their journeys. Yet in the heavenly blue Dreamtime, destiny patiently waits."

Boomerang Gallery
Presenting Fine Aboriginal Art on Traditional Boomerangs

Paul Bryden collected these boomerangs during the last twenty years in S.E. Queensland, western N.S.W. and along the Murray River, Victoria. They are one-of-a-kind artefacts cut and shaped from natural ‘elbows’, with beautiful wood grain following the curve in traditional style. Aboriginal boomerangs of this outstanding quality and authenticity are increasingly difficult to find.

Now finely decorated by Greg Weatherby, these rare artefacts are hand-painted individually and highly sought after by collectors. Currently, we have five magnificent ‘boomerang works of art’ available.
