Artist: Tarisse King

Title: Earth Images

Medium: Acrylic on Linen

Size: 90x150cm

Year: 2023

Common to Aboriginal practice, Tarisse was handed down the Earth Images style to paint by her late father, William King Jungala.  It is a macro view of land around the small remote town of Katherine, the area where her Gurindji tribe once inhabited.  It details meandering rivers, small tributaries, active and abandoned campsites.

The impact of strong colour is immediate in these artworks and the canvas is starkly broken by the dominant and contrasting lines mapping waterways cutting their way through the land.  By concentrating her background dots or placing them sparingly Tarisse manages to create a 3-D effect of landscape, as if one was seeing all the formations from a bird’s eye view.
