Description: Graham depicts his sacred terrain in a strikingly unique way. His work displays uncommon strength, mathematical balance and poetic harmony. The subject of his work is the Tingari Cycle, secret song cycles sacred to men. The Tingari are a group of Ancestral Beings who travelled through the Kanapilynga region, south east of Lake Mackay region performing Malliera, sacred initiation rituals which are associated with Thomas’ many Dreaming sites, stretching from near the Western Australia border to Central Australia. These Dreaming Sites and songs are depicted in the traditional ochre colours of the desert. His paintings map both the physical and spiritual dimensions of his sacred country and his mastery of structure and composition place him as an artist at the forefront of contemporary painting. A small outlay now, a good future investment.
