Judy Watson began painting in the mid-1980s in the community of Yuendumu with her older sister Maggie Napangardi Watson.
Like most walpiri of this generation, she had a nomadic existence before settling in Yuendumu, making a living from hunting and gathering.
Judy is arguably the artist at this art center using such a rich color palette, though she also excels in white and black.
It was around the sites of Mina Mina, Yingipurlangu located between the Gibson desert and that of Tanami that she was initiated into the traditional knowledge from which she draws inspiration in her paintings, seeking to transmit all the quintessence and the energy that emanates from these sacred sites.
His flexible and alert technique allows him to play with color associations and complex shapes to create magnificent compositions as harmonious as they are luminous.
Deceased in 2016, Judy is considered one of the leaders of Aboriginal art. His paintings are part of important private and public collections in Australia and internationally.
