Arts writer Louise Martin-Chew sits with Judy Watson’s a preponderance of aboriginal blood, 2019. This book was originally a limited-edition artist’s book (2005), with the republished edition launched at the State Library of Queensland in February 2020. It takes real documents from the archive that relate to the life of Watson’s grandmother, Grace Isaacson. They are splashed with red and poetically treated, drawing into recent memory the restrictions imposed on Aboriginal people from 1897. Watson is represented by Tolarno Galleries in Melbourne and Milani Galleries in Brisbane.
