Urban Aboriginal Prints - Arone Meeks

Gwion


Urban Aboriginal art has developed in parallel with the rapid growth in Aboriginal art activity in more remote areas.

Our first group of prints by an urban-based artist is by Arone Meeks, a distinguished painter and print maker from Cairns in north east Queensland. For more information about Arone see the Biography of Arone Meeks. Examples of work by Arone Meeks and other Queensland Aboriginal artists are contained in the book Gatherings, available from our online shop.

Arone Meeks
Title: Spirit Ark
Price: $3630.00 in Australia
$3300.00 for Export.
PR546, 2008
Linocut, edition size 35
150 x 90 cm
This work is based on navigation by the stars, the boat being both a symbolic vehicle to travel back to the dreaming in and a connection with country, spirit and place. Contained within this vessel are elements of my childhood: the figure with three dillybags, a guiding light (far left), my mother (far right) and the three mangrove men. These designs, like those below the boat in the water, are location markers. They talk of the dugong seagrasses, irukandji jellyfish, sea cucumbers and the spawning coral.Other key elements to the work are the different stages of personal growth through my years as a painter and printmaker and my relationship to place.

Title: This Healing Place
Price: $550.00 in Australia
$500.00 for Export.
PR540, 2007
Screenprint (4 plate), edition size 45
57 x 76 cm
The figure to the right reflects The Tablelands and the fresh water that comes carving new life with each wet season. The figure to the left represents a "Bush Spirit", within which contains the water holes, new growth, plant-life and bird-life. The central figure is that of the artist with hands reaching into the earth which in return sustains his identity, country and culture. The image supporting these figures is one of fertility and connecting forces.

Title: Return of the Big Wet
Price: $550.00 in Australia
$500.00 for Export.
PR541, 2007
Screenprint, edition size 45
57 x 76 cm
The raft is used as a vehicle for returning back to the dreaming; within the boat to the right of the central figure is a mangrove totem, and further left is that of the dugong rib cage bone, decorated with male symbols. To the right of the central figure is a freshwater bush spirit and further right there is a figure of a dugong. Within the dugong are shapes containing stingray, turtle and spirit figures. The overall concept of this work was one of when the monsoon begins and fertile freshwater cuts and creates new pathways to the reef/ocean. This could also be seen as a time of renewing of the dreaming.
