”One Mother had two baby girls, in one waterhole. Two girls find butterfly flying towards them. They try to grab them. They chase them all the way. They come to a big mob of women who pick up the two girls. Mother comes back and find them gone. She follow their tracks and come to the women but they wouldn’t give back the two babies.” - Jimmy Pike
Jimmy Pike (c1940-2002) was a Walmatjarri Aboriginal artist. He lived in a Bush camp on the edge of the remote Great Sandy Desert of north Western Australia where he painted, producing the art for which he has become so well known. Jimmy’s paintings of the physical and spiritual quality of his traditional Walmajarri country added a new dynamism to the central positions of landscape in Australian art. They project a new dimension to our understanding of connections of place and identity. Jimmy Pike is one of Australia’s most famous Aboriginal artists. He is represented in the collections of all major Australian public art galleries and museums.
