My Country, Walter Brown Tjangala
Walter’s Dreaming encompasses the sacred men’s ceremonies that come from his community in Kintore. These include Tingari, Fire Dreaming and Spear Dreaming.
Walter’s signature Spear Dreaming was taught to him by his artist father, who is very well-known for painting Fire Dreaming. The story tells of the hunting and ceremonial spears passing through the fire, which is both a practical and symbolic tradition held by certain men within Walter’s community. This ceremony is traditionally a closed ceremony, to which only the men of Kintore are allowed to attend.
Walter’s depictions of his Dreaming are vivid and bold, encompassing strong contrasting colours and lines to create visually stunning pieces of contemporary art.
