      • Richard Bell - I Am Not a Yuppie, 2002
        Jun. 20, 2023

        Richard Bell - I Am Not a Yuppie, 2002

        Est: $2,000 - $4,000

        Born in 1953, Richard Bell spent his early childhood living in a tent, then a corrugated tin shack on an Aboriginal reserve until he was 14. He witnessed first hand the mistreatment of Aboriginal people when his home was bulldozed by the government. He became involved in the Aboriginal Rights Movement in the 1970s before working for the New South Wales Aboriginal Legal Service, and began painting at 34 as a way to earn money by making souvenirs for tourists. Bell came to national attention after his painting Scientia E Metaphysica (Bell's Theorem) won the 2003 Telstra National Aboriginal & Torres Strait Islander Art Award. It prominently featured the text "Aboriginal Art – It's A White Thing". Bell plays with the appropriation of abstract expressionism and works by pop art painters like Roy Lichtenstein, Jasper Johns, and Andy Warhol. The text that accompanies each piece is generally what challenges the viewer. Bell is brutally honest in exposing Australia’s racism towards Aboriginal people, endemic white privilege, negative stereotyping, and exoticising of the “other”. In 2022 his documentary 'You Can Go Now' was received to critical acclaim and was a precursor to his installation of 'Embassy' in the Turbine Hall at TATE Modern in 2023.
