They are men and women who live in the desert and do not recognize borders between the life and the painting. The movement of the modern native art was born in 1971 when a teacher of school proposed the neighbors of a community who painted a wall. In the gorgeous book the outlines of the song the English writer Brushes Chatwin explains better than nobody the sense of the life of the Australian natives: ” The Australian natives remake the world on a daily basis returning on the outlines of the song of their ancestors, and thus they maintain the secret creation of mountains, valleys, deserts and rivers always fresh (), a vast symphony of outlines meldicos”. Under that philosophy of unit with the physical and sentimental world, where everyone is ” a thread plotted in the network of a respectable universe and chaotic, a melodic line that reasons in tune in the frequency of the lines of his resemblances, ancestors, and descendientes” , the initial settlers of the Australian continent (400 towns that speaks 250 languages) developed an expressive form where the art is not separated of the life: one and another one dissolves to each other. Intense and pure works In spite of the devastating ctos of the colonization, the diseases, racism, the deficiency of rights and semi the slavery, the natives – same they want to be called thus, by the Latin root ab-originates, from the origin – have obtained that their powerful and rich expresivas forms shine with a singular intensity and purity in the panorama, frequently banal and mercantilizado, of the contemporary art. A new collective exhibition comes to confirm the power that leaves without speech of this art as form of complete communication with the world.
