Abstract (English)

Stanton illustrates how contemporary Aboriginal art reflects both the diversity of Australia's Native Peoples and their collective social experience, dominated by colonialization. Noting a parallel to Western art, MacNayr stresses the precedence of "ideas and process" in the work, along with evidence of a strong connection to nature and use of traditional visual language. Includes 33 artist's statements. Biographical notes. 5 bibl. ref.
