Summary

This large and illustrated monograph presents the spectacular painting of a master colourist - Yannima Pikarli Tommy Watson.

A Pitjantjatjana elder who maintains his home and studio in Alice Springs, he still travels extensively across his country to fulfill traditional obligations.

Watsons Dreaming stories, inherited from his family, relate to sites and geographical features within his country; all his paintings are of these designated places.

While no two paintings are alike, the characteristics of each place can be recognised. Watson is now regarded as a major figure within the contemporary Indigenous art movement and his work is known overseas by virtue of his designs for ceiling panels in France’s Musee du quai Branly.
