Australia’s Forgotten Rock Paintings.

Australia’s Forgotten Rock Paintings.


Ed. Reto Weiler. In German and Enlglish. The north-western part of Australia, more specifically the Kimberley region in the state of Western Australia, is the site of magnificent, highly impressive artwork. There one finds rock paintings with an extraordinary style, known to much of the world as ‘Bradshaws’, after the Australian settler Joseph Bradshaw who described them, and to the Aborigines who live there today as ‘Gwion Gwion’. There are so many rock paintings spread across the Kimberley that previously unknown paintings are still being discovered. Among the ‘discoverers’ are Reto and Astrid Weiler, who have dedicated their leisure time to the ‘Bradshaws’ for many years. While Reto Weiler approaches the images from a scientific perspective, his wife has taken a more artistic approach to the rock paintings; inspired by the sand and colours of the Kimberley, she interprets the artistic works in her own way as she creates her own distinguished adaptations
