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. Winston's 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 undertaken numerous commissions with works being held in several private collections.
Rex’s contemporary paintings are a unique response to his environment and landscape, expressed through an innate skill for precise dot markings. 


MILKY WAY DREAMING

As a child Rex would look up to the stars and the huge milky way galaxy and know that his Aboriginal family lived under these same skies. This gave Rex a feeling of immense pride and a knowledge and feeling that he belonged to this country. To think that he could look up at the milky way and see the same stars that his ancestors had also gazed upon gave Rex an important spiritual connection to his country and past. 

Although the stories of his ancestors can now only be be heard through the blowing of the breeze Rex can always feel their presence when he gazes into the stars .
