In 1971, a teacher named Geoffrey Bardon, working with indigenous Australians, provided a group of elderly and middle-aged men with acrylic paints and pieces of Masonite and suggested that they make paintings based on their own aesthetic and spiritual traditions. "The Trial," 1972, by Charlie Tarawa (Tjaruru) Tjungurrayi

Accustomed to painting their bodies and ceremonial objects and making temporary sand mosaics, the men took to the new materials brilliantly. Improbably, a new movement was born, and within a few years paintings made by Aboriginal artists from across Australia had become an international phenomenon.

After the introduction of Masonite panels, other art teachers brought canvas and stretchers to Papunya, enabling the painters to create larger works. The exhibition's earliest painting on canvas is one from 1974 by Shorty Lungkarta Tjungurrayi. On an approximately 5-by-3-foot surface, he painted scores of overlapping whorls of different sizes in reds, yellows and pinks. The forms come out at you with exuberant energy, like sounds from a jazz orchestra. Photo: Grey Art Gallery
