The Art of Eddie Burrup consists of a series of paintings, discursive titles and essays created by Elizabeth Durack during the last years of her life. Reflected within the series are ideas and experiences the artist had gained over a lifetime of association with the land and Aboriginal people of northern Australia. Produced on paper and linen between the years 1994 to 2000, the Durack/Burrup works vary in size. Smaller works, as on offer here, are known collectively as ‘Glimpses’ of the Ngarangani (Dreaming).
