and Peter Los, 1991

Clifford Possum Tjapaltjarri was the most conceptually and technically advanced Australian Aboriginal Artist to ever pick up a brush. He hardly had time to live his own life before he became a legend and now is well on his way into mythological status. His work commands pride of place in virtually every Australian public Institution. Geologist, scientist, explorer Peter Los travelled for more than two decades of Possum’s life path right alongside him. In the process, he collected some of his finest iconic works and rare examples from his private collection are being offered in tribute to his place in the international global marketplace by Clars on November 15th.
