Judy Watson is a Waanyi artist who works in printmaking, painting, video and installation. Her work often examines Indigenous Australian histories. Watson’s studio processes involving tracing, outlining and wet pigments are intimately connected with her interests in the indelible stains left on country through the reverberations of colonisation. Through the layering of surfaces, Watson’s ethereal imagery suggests notions of concealed pasts, memory and illumination. Her work is held in major Australian and international public collections. Most recently her work was shown at Tarrawarra in the exhibition Looking Glass: Judy Watson and Yhonnie Scarce and at Artspace in the exhibition djillong dumalara. Watson’s work will be featured in the forthcoming exhibitions The National at the MCA and The Image is not Nothing at the Margaret Lawrence Gallery.
