Please note: Artists not classified as American in our database may have limited biographical data compared to the extensive information about American artists.

Tommy Skeen’s importance in Balgo art history belies the relatively small number of works in his catalogue. His paintings hum with complex imagery and narratives, but are always balanced by the bold spaces he carved out for story. In Yaparnungalangala his dots, looser than those of most men, seem to emanate from and vibrate against these ancestral actions. His stark iconography addresses matters of ceremonial knowledge and ritual practice with a confidence and unselfconsciousness rare in desert (showing 500 of 1888 characters).
