Collection: Tommy Watson

This exhibit celebrates one of our personal favourite artists, the wonderful Mr. Tommy Watson. We are very excited to have been able to secure some work from this superb artist and have enjoyed some of his works on our own walls over the years.  We are proud to now share them with you in this exhibit, and make them available for sale.

He is a senior Pitjantjatjarra elder who regards his paintings as his beautiful country and as symbolically passing on very important cultural knowledge to do with his country and land.  As Tommy learned from his grandmother and Grandfather (having tragically lost his parent before the age of 8). He now uses his artwork to detail the topography of his country,  and the stories of his people relating to the dreamtime and their ancient spirits.

Utilising a vibrant dotting style, resting heavily on red, orange, yellow, and pink, with splashes of white and blue his work is bold and dramatic, and has garnered him a great deal of attention on both the local Australian stage and the international art community at large. 

As an artist his incredible attention to detail is reflected in the glorious works that he creates. The fusion of colour, texture and form allow the viewer to experience his country. His immense talent was recognised in 2007 when he was one of only eight artist that were selected for the permanent exhibition at the prestigious Musee de Quay Branly in Paris 2007.
