OUR ABORIGINAL ART COLLECTION
The Tali Gallery, specialises in quality contemporary Aboriginal artwork. At the top end, we stock highly collectible aboriginal artworks ranging from the famous Clifford Possum, to the extraordinary Rothko-esque colour fields of Emily Kngwarreye’s brother Kudditji Kngwarreye, to the unique colour variations of Makinti Napanangka in her women’s hair skirt ceremony paintings. We also stock works by the famed Tjapaltjarri brothers (part of the ‘lost tribe’ of Aboriginals who walked out of the desert in 1984 having never seen or heard of white people before. The paintings of these elders are pure reflections of an ancient culture and as such, are a finite resource – that is what all the fuss is about.
For the more speculative buyer or simply for lovers of beautiful art, our emerging aboriginal artists are a source of brilliant indigenous images: from the elegant yam dreamings of June Bird, daughter of Ada Bird, to the striking canoe paintings of Helen Tyalmuty McCarthy; the fine but confident works of Natalie Purvis (daughter of Peggy Purvis) and Gracie Pwerle Morton to the powerful tribal canvases by Monica Napaltjarri and Topsy Peterson; the lyrical dot paintings by Betty Munti and the outstanding spiritual works of Jeremy Devitt – these are just a few examples of our emerging Aboriginal artists.
The clients of Tali Gallery are serious collectors of Australian Indigenous Artwork, superannuation funds (including self managed superannuation funds) and other investors in authentic Aboriginal Art. We send works to clients throughout Australia and to USA, Europe and Asia.
We have an extensive stockroom of medium to large sized indigenous paintings, which can satisfy the needs of designers of contemporary domestic interiors as well as provide Aboriginal masterworks for corporations’ foyers, board rooms and public areas.
All our indigenous art is guaranteed authentic (with certificates of authenticity, biographies and in most cases, work in progress photographs provided). Although visually highly contemporary, the majority of our indigenous artworks use ancient iconography and embody traditional Aboriginal (creation) dreamings passed down unchanged for thousands of years in Australia’s timeless indigenous culture.
Tali Gallery, owner of the gallery, is herself a collectible artist of some note. She is best known for her powerful and unique paintings of the Australian Outback: strong and contemporary paintings with the bold, improbable vistas of the harsh Australian landscape from wetlands to grasslands to shining waters or the famous red deserts of central Australia. Semi-abstract iconic paintings with strong design elements and fascinating detail in both texture and content. At the same time, the paintings have the undeniable stillness and spirituality one feels in such remote places. Media include oil painting, acrylic, egg tempera, encaustic and mixed media on Belgian linen, canvas or board.
Tali Gallery captures the strong colours and spirit of Outback Australia and hangs comfortably with the Aboriginal Paintings – it is a different perspective of the same land.
