Kurun Warun

Kurun was bornin Queensland in 1966 and is from the Gunditjmara tribe. He was taught to paint by his mother. Kurun Warun’s style is an excellent example of the multivalent nature present in Aboriginal art; meaning the designs used in the paintings often have many interrelated and symbolic meanings. The surface narrative elements, known as the paintings ‘Story’ or ‘Dreaming’, are one of the many layers of an aboriginal paintings meaning. The imagery utilised by Aboriginal artists has deep cultural resonances that defy logic and narrative interpretations. The western viewer can, however, intuitively feel the power of this spiritual resonance without necessarily having to understand the details, which are known only by the initiatedHe sees his work as a development of contemporary Aboriginal abstract art. All his work has a traditional meaning not always observed by the eye at first glance. His work is bound with colour and carefully defined within line and space to lead the viewer through the underlying story.
