Theme: The Land

Birth/Death: 1929–1984

Title: Water Dreaming

Credit Line: Purchased 1993 - 1996 National Gallery of Australia, Canberra.

Tim Leura Tjapaltjarri adopts a roughly symmetrical but conventional composition associated with Water Dreamings in the paintings of the Anmatyerre, Arrernte, Warlpiri, Luritja and other Desert groups. The sinuous parallel curves that represent flowing water - and perhaps lightning - are flanked by double bars that represent the rain clouds.
