Darren Siwes develops new ways of interpreting 'Aboriginal Art' and is one of the most important Australian artists of indigenous origin
The present work is titled 'Church 1' and belongs to the series 'Misperceptions' by Darren Siwes. It shows a blurred depiction of a man dressed with a suit and a dark coat and in front of a Lutheran church. Darren Siwes, who himself also belongs to the Aboriginal minority, often integrates pictures of his indigenous fellows, but presents them like ghosts in front of the chosen landmarks such as a local church as a symbol of cultural and historical interaction. His works may therefore be interpreted as visual statements about the integration of Aborigines into the white Australian community.

The photograph is laminated on an aluminium board and sealed with acrylic glass. It merely shows a number of faint scratches on the surface of the acrylic glass. The wooden frame is painted in black and is partly affected by handling and scratch marks. The sheet size is 100 x 120 cm and the framed overall dimensions are 118.8 x 138.5 cm.

Darren Siwes (b. 1968)

Darren Siwes graduated from the University of South Australia with a Bachelor in Visual Arts and a Graduate Diploma of Education. An artist of the Aborigines, Siwes deals with preserved traditions and losses of Aboriginal culture since the British colonization of Australia. In his works, he usually depicts familiar landscapes and places in Australia, in which he integrates blurred pictures of Aborigines. Siwes is interested in political, historical, philosophical and cultural dynamics and provides with his modern works an important contribution to contemporary Aboriginal art. Siwes has participated in numerous national exhibitions. His works can be found in collections such as the Art Gallery of South Australia and the National Gallery of Australia. The artist lives and works in Adelaide, Australia. (cbo)

The present work is titled 'I Am Expecting' and belongs to the series 'Misperceptions' by Darren Siwes.
