Title: By the Billabong
Artist: Judy Prosser headed to the
Kimberley region after studying art in Perth.
She lives on an Outback station where she
paints the vast and changing landscape.
Judy's great respec t for Indigenous people
and their spiritual connection to the land
have resulted in her distinctive approach
to painting. Featured in public and private
collections worldwide, Judy has been the
recipient of many awards, including the
Kimberley Art Prize (1989) and BHP Billiton
Art Awards (2008).
The Artwork: In the golden evening light,
the brolga and figure weave a graceful
dance silhouetted against the sculptural
boab forms. Their movement is in contrast
to the stillness of the billabong. The
interplay of colour, light, form and texture
enhance the atmosphere of this piece and
engage the viewer in their performance.

The Artwork: This work portrays the
innocence and joy of early childhood. The
artist reveals a playful inquisitiveness that
provokes fond memories of youth. The
work is executed with a graphic intention
reminiscent of Andy Warhol's pop art from
the 1960s, with layers of colour, graphic
