In a career that has spanned more than 20 years Freddy Timms has become known for aerial map-like visions of country that are less concerned with ancestral associations than with tracing the responses and refuges of the Gija people as they encountered the ruthlessness and brutality of colonization. However, his political nature is characterized by more intimate interpretations of the experience rather than overtly political statements. Freddy Timms is foremost amongst those Gija artists of the second generation.
