In this painting, Tommy May emotively depicts memories from his childhood, growing up in the desert. May’s energetic linework evokes the constant movement between places during the adventures May and his family had when the artist was a boy.
May describes these memories poetically,
‘Walking up and down, around, always moving, hunting, and waking up next to water. Tracking, thinking, smelling, listening, and moving. Laying down in the shade. Singing songs in the night-time and telling stories.’
Known for his wild approach to colour and mark-making, and experimental use of mixed-media, May’s work is held in many private and public collections. In 2021, the artist was recipient of a sculpture commission through the Art Gallery of Western Australia, creating a ‘golden cloud’ in brass, aluminium, stone, and soil.
