Australian Mallee Art

Australian Mallee Art has one of the most comprehensive authentic aboriginal art collections in Australia and one of the most passionate and knowledgeable curators in Mojca Anzic.

Why Mallee Art?
Mallee is an ancient aboriginal word meaning WIDE and is a reflection of Mojca’s quest for the best art form wherever it is created.

What you will see in the Gallery collection, which is all on offer for sale, is the culmination of over twenty years of Mojca’s travels throughout aboriginal art communities in outback Australia, establishing relationships with experienced and emerging artists, mentoring them and championing their works to a local, national and international audience.

Australian Mallee Art has an expansive collection of styles of aboriginal painting reflecting the communities, their beliefs, their heritage, individual materials and mentors. You will also discover that there’s so much more to their art than what appears on the canvas. Mystery remains in the canvas, not just on it, yet it is perceptible.

Over her many years as an aboriginal art devotee, Mojca Anzic’s travels have taken her to the major art communities in the Northern Territory and Western Australia, from the Kimberley’s, Central and Western Deserts, Arnhem Land and the Top End. Within these areas are many arts communities all with their distinct motifs and styles.You will find stunning examples from a wide selection of these iconic arts and crafts havens.

Cultural anthropologist Malak Wassef-Edgar on aboriginal art
Art for the indigenous Australian is not about aesthetic value, although its aesthetic appeal to the Western eye is undeniable. It has instead a functional and sacred value: by painting, the Aborigine recreates visually his “place” – which was conferred upon him through his totemic association from conception or birth, a place which is the embodiment of his spirit. The painting becomes a story-telling map of that piece of land in his custody. In that sense, the importance of a painting laid more in the actual process of painting than in the end result.

Your purchase of a painting from the Australian Mallee Art collection, will of course be a prudent investment, but one of pleasure as well.
