Synopsis: Papunya: A Place Made After the Story is a first-hand account of the artists and the works emanating from Papunya, birthplace of the Western Desert Painting Movement. Based on the exquisitely recorded notes and drawings of Geoffrey Bardon, the man who instigated the movement's development, the extensive documentation features over 500 paintings, drawings and photographs, many of which have never been seen before. This monumental work is an unpredecented achievement and essential reading for anyone wanting to gain unique insights into a fascinating subject.

About the Author: Geoffrey Bardon studied law and art education. In 1971, he took up a posting to Papunya in the Northern Territory, Australia. He worked closely with the Aboriginal painters who became the founders of the Papunya Tula painting movement during 1971 to 1973, and devoted many years after this to documenting and promoting the Aboriginal art he so admired. He died in 2003. His brother James helped realise this, Geoffrey's last book.

Book Description Lund Humphries Publishers Ltd, United Kingdom, 2006. Hardback. Book Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. In 1971, a hopeful young art teacher drove the long, lonely road from Alice Springs to the Aboriginal outpost settlement at Papunya. His name was Geoffrey Bardon. Eighteen months later he left Papunya, defeated by the hostile white authority. But his legacy was the beginnings of the Western Desert Painting Movement and the inspiration for this fascinating account of Bardon s experiences and the Aboriginal art of Papunya. What started as an exercise to encourage the Aboriginal schoolchildren to record their sand patterns and games grew to involve, at the peak of creativity, as many as 30 tribal men and elders. With Geoffrey Bardon s encouragement, these men worked to preserve their traditional Dreamings and stories in paint. The artistic movement unleashed at Papunya spread over Central Australia and has since achieved international acclaim. Papunya: A Place Made After the Story is a first-hand account of the artists and the works emanating from Papunya. Bardon s exquisitely recorded notes and drawings are here reproduced showing his extensive documentation of the early stages of the painting movement. This book features over 500 paintings, drawings and photographs from Bardon s personal archive. Many of the images have never been seen before and many of the paintings are now lost. The publication of this material is an unprecedented achievement, and Bardon can now be seen as the catalyst he was for a powerfully modern expression of an ancient indigenous way of seeing the world.
