Judy Watson is one of Australia s leading contemporary artists. Her art explores territory that includes the dispossessed Indigenous Australians with whom she shares a family history and heritage. Judy Watson's art is intense and sublime in its physicality. blood language is a beautifully illustrated pictorial exploration of some of Judy Watson s seminal canvases, works on paper, sculptural projects and artist s books. Judy Watson imparts the artist s ideas and writer Louise Martin-Chew gives another insight into the artist s practice. Water, skin, poison, dust & blood, ochre, bones and driftnet are defining themes in an empathetic art that seeks to find a broader geography of belonging. Watson creates highly sophisticated works of beauty that are subtly political and intensely personal.show more
