Indigenous artists have brought their culture to the international stage from the breadth of the Australian continent and its surrounding islands. Spirit Country explores the vibrant contemporary Aboriginal art that has caught the eyes of the Western art world but for those who make them they are also religious documents, maps, personal histories and title deeds to land. Through their work, Aboriginal artists invite a more appreciative understanding of their world and its diversity. This book celebrates the emergence of a modern and vibrant indigenous voice though the visual arts.
Jennifer Isaacs' interest in Aboriginal cultural heritage and Aboriginal art spans decades. She is a prominent writer, curator and arts manager widely recognised for her many bestselling books on Aboriginal culture.
