About Me

My name is Richard Aldridge and I am a keen collector and dealer of both early Aboriginal art and antique tribal art. Some of the Aboriginal bark paintings that I purchase stay in my collection. Other Aboriginal bark paintings I make sure go to people who appreciate them.

It is important that certain significant pieces of Aboriginal Art make their way back to Australia. It is worthwhile getting such pieces into a public institution where they can educate and be enjoyed by all Australians.

I have exhibited in America and New Zealand and contributed to several tribal art publications.

I have been dealing in indigenous art for over 17 years and I still enjoy seeing new pieces and where possible sharing my knowledge.

Aboriginal bark paintings is my passion so feel free to contact me.
