‘Australian Painting Now’ celebrates the vitality of contemporary Australian art as it moves into the twenty-first century. It profiles the work of eighty significant contemporary artists, providing a glimpse of the great achievements of the Australian art scene in recent years. Nominated for inclusion by fourteen Australian writers on art, the artists introduced range from postmodernists to those who have chosen to abandon theories of art altogether. Some are engaged with their immediate environment, finding meaning in the intimate and familiar. Others explore myths or seek a sense of transcendence which takes painting beyond form and context. Included here too is the work of Aboriginal artists recording the sacred iconography of their land. It also includes current innovative approaches to figuration, collaboration and abstraction which build on directions explored by Australian contemporary painting in the 1970s and 1980s.
