Creation Rebels

There is no ‘big bang’ effect in the artworks of Judy Watson. Her methods are visual stealth and excavating the dark cracks of history to tell stories that are both contemporary and aboriginal.


…a seductive beautiful exterior with a strong message like a deadly poison dart that insinuates itself into the consciousness of the viewer without them being aware of the package until it implodes and leaks its contents…

These words might have come from an eloquent art critic but they are, in fact, Judy Watson herself describing her method for getting under the skin of those who view her art works.
