REX WINSTON WALFORD

Rex Winston was born in 1968 in Sydney, NSW and belongs to the Kamilaroi language group. Winston was adopted by a white family at three months of age and grew up at Nyngan, a farming community in central western  NSW. Winstons interest in his birth mother and aboriginal heritage was sparked when he first began painting. With the support of his adoptive parents and a government agency he was able to locate and meet his birth mother and it was only last year he also met his aboriginal father.

Rex has never had any formal art training. He is an established commercial contemporary Aboriginal artist who has unde taken numerous commissions with works being held in numerous private collections.  Rex has been a finalist in the NSW parliament indigenous art prize every year since it started except for 2006 and was commended in 2010 
 
Rex’s contemporary paintings are a unique response to his environment and landscape, expressed through an innate skill for precise dot markings.

 

ANCESTRAL WINDS

This painting depicts ancestral winds. It shows the strong coastal winds that are experienced in Rex’s hometown. Rex believes that the winds carry secret message from passed away ancestors. Although the stories of his ancestors can now only be heard through the blowing of the breeze Rex can always feel their presence.
