Judy Watson – ‘Artists are Strange Creatures’ | TateShots

Meet Judy Watson, an artist working in print-making, drawing, painting, video and installation.

Based in Brisbane, Judy’s Aboriginal matrilineal family are from Waanyi country in north-west Queensland. Her art explores issues such as cultural memory, aboriginal history and the artist’s own family.

‘Artists are strange creatures’, Watson says. ‘We have that passion to follow through working with chaos, issues within the environment, racial issues – which I look at a lot.’
