“Ainslie Roberts is one of Australia’s best-known and best-loved artists. His unique body of work, based on the mythology of the Australian Aborigines. The uncompromising nature of the Australian landscape has often prevented white men and women from fully experiencing its magic, and what they do see is filtered through the lens of their inherited culture. However, when the breathtaking visual beauty of the land inspires a powerful artistic imagination, the floodgates of creativity open, and works of great strength and originality result.”
