LARRTJANGA GANAMBARR

Biography

Larrtjanga Ganambarr was a creative artist. Larrtjanga Ganambarr was born in 1932. Also born in 1932 and of this same generation are Robert John Cormier, Corneel Van Gorp, Prim Fullà, Paolo Cassinelli, and Paul Alle.

Born in 1932, Larrtjanga Ganambarr's creative work was largely inspired by the 1950s. In the Post-War period the lens of modernism was focused, in terms of internationally, on developments in New York City. The Second World War had brought many important artists to the city in exile from Europe, leading to a significant pooling of talent and ideas.

Important Europeans that came to New York and provided inspiration for American artists included Piet Mondrian, Josef Albers and Hans Hoffmann, who between them set the basis of much of the United States’ explosive cultural growth in the subsequent decades. Important artists of the Abstract Expressionist Generation included Jackson Pollock (who innovated his famed drip, splatter and pour painting techniques), Willem de Kooning, Mark Rothko, Frank Kline, Barnett Newman, Clyfford Still and Adolph Gottlieb. It was a male dominated environment, but necessary revisionism of this period has highlighted the contributions of female artists such as Lee Krasner, Joan Mitchell, and Louise Bourgeois, amongst others.
