Milky Way Dreaming

Paddy Japaljarri Sims, 1999

Acrylic on Canvas, 48” x 36”

 

  

 

Paddy Japaljarri Sims has an amazing personal story that was chronicled in the 2006 documentary, Singing the Milky Way. He was born into a traditional nomadic hunter-gatherer culture in depths of central Australian desert and did not encounter people from the outside world until he was in his early twenties. 

 

Despite having made art for ceremonial purposes all of his adult life, Paddy did not begin his fine art career until he was in his late 60's. His paintings are based on ceremonial art, designs which represent "Dreamings" or creation mythologies of which he was the custodian.
