"Rain Dreaming" Aboriginal Painting by Frank Bronson Jakamarra Nelson


    Frank Bronson Jakamarra Nelson

    Born May 5 1948 at Yuendumu, and a Warlpiri, Frank Bronson Jakamarra Nelson was one of the younger men who joined the painting group as the art enterprise started to take off in Yuendumu in 1986.

    In addition to numerous exhibitions since mid ’86 with Warlukurlangu Artists (of which was co-Chairperson), Bronson also branched out in successful two person exhibitions, the first at Chandler Coventry Gallery in Sydney in 1987 and then in February 1990 at the Dreamtime Gallery as part of the Perth Festival a group show with his wife, Norah Nelson . Such individual 'career’ initiatives are unusual amongst Yuendumu artists, but may be seen as a further dimension of the 'bi-cultural’ facility evident in his paintings.

    His Dreamings were Wapirti (Small Yam), Yarla (Big Yam), Ngapa (Water), Marlu (Kangaroo), Pamapardu (Flying Ant). Jakamarra men are the custodians of the rain dreaming.
