We acknowledg­e and pay our respect to the many Aboriginal nations across this land, traditiona­l custodians, Elders past and present; in particular the Guringai people of the Eora Nation where Art Almanac has been produced.

‘Most of my work is about taking ownership of my own narrative’ says this month’s cover artist Atong Atem who is featured in a group show about identity titled ‘Our Common Bond’. This sentiment carries through the issue in varied ways from the deeply personal, yet universal, work of Robert Hague and the storytelli­ng of artists included in ‘Desert River Sea: Portraits of the Kimberley’. Collective consciousn­ess, or empathy toward the environmen­t, is personifie­d in the work of Janet Laurence, whereas Robbie Harmsworth considers the beauty in the narrative arc of the natural world, from decay to new beginnings.
