Yannima Tommy Watson

Title: Pikarli, Size: 1150x1790


Dreaming: This painting is a lyrical depiction of the country around the area of Tommy's birth.   He travelled widely in a nomadic lifestyle exploring his Pitjantjatjarra heritage in his early years and although associated directly with parts of his County, Tommy includes no identifiable iconographic form or colour in his work that could give the uninitiated insight into sacred ritual knowledge.  Instead, as in this case, the titles of Tommy's paintings describe places or encounters of personal and private significance, which he did not share or expand upon.
