From the Land to the canvas

On a recent visit to Alice Springs, Walpiri artist Judy Watson Napangardi arrived with her own stock of fresh bush tomatoes to eat. The bush tomato is one of the stories that Judy depicts in her paintings – see below.
Judy’s paintings are characterised by strong organic lines and circles and heavily textured overlays of sweet muted pastel tones or the more vibrant primary hues.
She also paints the stories of honey ants, digging sticks, snake vines and the hair-string belt, made famous by her contemporary Makinti Napanagka.She also paints the stories of honey ants, digging sticks, snake vines and the hair-string belt, made famous by her contemporary Makinti Napanagka.
