Tommy Yannima Watson (c.1935-2017)

Mary Knight in the book, Irruntju Arts described Tommy's style: he "uses layers of vibrant colours to symbolically represent the country of his parents and grandparents. Oranges, burgundy, reds, ivory and pinks are used to create sumptuous layers of coloured dots which ripple and surge across the canvas suggesting contours in the landscape, dry creek beds, plains of spinifex and tali (sand dunes)" (2006, p.72).
