Wooden Sign - Owyergoin
Wooden Sign - Owyergoin

Personal history of Alison Buchanan and the Gumbaynggirr coastal aboriginal people.

Chosen to exhibit at the Sydney Olympic Games brought Alison to the city.  The innocence of witnessing an aboriginal girl from the bush, jumping into the front line of technology is a pleasure to observe.   Alison established her own extremely successful gallery in Sydney.

The art world has responded to Alison's art with excitement, emotion and money.  Precision and fluidity unfolded in this spiritual art, with stories of love and respect for nature and life.  Reflecting the coastal colors and surroundings a unique art blending the horizons of 2000 with traditional flavours of the past, present and future. 

Alison recently purchased a 50 foot yacht called the Malahini II, and is painting the sails and hull with her unique art.  Alison will sail to the USA, Europe and the UK to exhibit in a number of major galleries.

Establishing one of the most successful aboriginal art print business in Australia by her own hard work and determination, featuring Alison's traditional art.  Original sales in 2002 include "Ocean Spirits" to a Sydney Chiropractor for $10K. a series of small originals and "Ancestors" to a Barrister Q.C. for $10K.  Four large originals to very private buyers in 2003.

The Aboriginal people of Australia is the oldest civilization still existing today. Other civilizations rise and fall, the aboriginal culture and social structure is one that has enabled longivity. 
Aboriginal art reflects stories and our way of life, today this art is maintained in modern day on canvas/linen, previously great amounts of time was taken to paint or draw a picture in the dirt as a way of explaining and passing down this knowledge.
Once understood the painting would be rubed out and they would continue on with life. The western world in contrast used text to prodominatly document history.  My art comes from a direct spirtual connection with messages of love and respect for out mother earth and all peoples who enjoy her abundant gifts.  I would feel that my peoples culture and love of  mother earth is something that our world needs at this time.  The technological revolution is wonderful however this needs to be balanced
with a love for our planet and understanding that everything we achive in our evolution and advancement ultimately comes from mother earth.
Yours in Unity,
Alison Buchanan. (Junoy Mariwan)
