Lavishly illustrated, this invaluable studyŠexamines theŠscope and depthŠof the workŠof leading contemporary Australian artist Judy Watson. Exploring the plight of the dispossessed, indigenous Australians with whom she shares a family history and heritage, Watson═s works are divided into the seven defining elements within her artistic themes. Each section serves as an extended picture-essay featuring commentary from the artist about her work and travels as well as objective perspectives by art critics. Imaginative and empathetic, Judy Watson═s work is a remarkable example of indigenous Australian art.
