Ronnie Tjampitjinpa, George Hairbrush Tjungurrayi and Michael Nelson Jagamara are the three artists exhibiting in Linesmen. During the 1990s they each transitioned from classic dot into bold linear composition whilst maintaining traditional stories. ‘Linesmen’, a term associated with electricity powerline workers, could be seen as a metaphor for the way these artists have created pivotal communication lines through their artworks between cultures. The bold black and white works by Tjampitjinpa, Rain Story and Jagamara, Confused possum contrast with the colour patterning of Tjungurrayi’s Tingari. These three artists were all featured in the Lines I-IV exhibitions.
