Title: Language of the Earth III

Medium: Sculpture, Metal, Natural Tarnish

Size: 60x50x25cm

Year: 2020

With this sculpture Sarrita wanted to translate her ‘Language of the Earth” story into a 3D object. The choice to use metal is a reflection on the strength and longevity of the Australian Indigenous culture and the stories passed down over the centuries. The tarnish is a reflection of the age of the markings and long history of these stories.

Sarrita King | Language of the Earth

This is the earth’s story. It is also the story of black and white upon the land and the history we have created and carved into it by our interactions with one another. The intersections of black and white culture and how they meet, creating a narrative in the land and in history, and then moving on in their individual and collaborative journeys are abstractly depicted. These paintings thematically diverge from Sarrita’s elemental inspired series. In an abstract way Sarrita references the iconography of the Tingari creation ancestors with her use of strong rectangles. These are then given body with dots and dashes, similar to Morse code. These symbols of communication are haunting in their familiarity, like an ancient language that was once known but now sits dormant at the back of one’s memory. The overall aesthetic is bold and assertive, and just like much iconography in Aboriginal cultures, the ancient now appears contemporary.

Our Land

In the ‘Our Land’ imagery Sarrita is telling the story of the many paths taken when someone leaves their homeland but always feeling connected to their community. In the painting the thick circle represents the homeland and the delicate lines represent the crisscrossing pathways across the land. The many pathways and the ‘tears’ in the pathways and extra layers remind us this journey has been going on with our ancestors throughout humanity.

Title: My Country's Story II

Medium: Sculpture, Metal, Natural Tarnish

Size: 76x63x12cm

Year: 2020

With this sculpture Tarisse & Sarrita wanted to translate their collaboration ‘My Country’s Story’  into a 3D object. The choice to use metal is a reflection on the strength and longevity of the Australian Indigenous culture and the stories passed down over the centuries. The natural tarnish is a reflection of the age of the markings and long history of these stories.

TK&SK | My Country’s Story

This style is a collaborative combining Tarisse’s My Country style and Sarrita’s Language of the Earth style. The painting shows the tearing away of the land, specifically areas around Katherine to reveal the Earth’s story. The history of the land where we come from connects us to our family, our culture and all living things. Sarrita seeks to express her impression of the land and some of its stories. The symbols within the painting are patterns for the viewer to connect with but the layout of the painting has its own story.

 Tarisse King | My Country

Driven to map the country around Katherine, where her ancestors once walked, Tarisse depicts land formations such as rivers, rock holes, billabongs, shelters, tracks and food sources.  In this series, Tarisse visually explores the way her ancestors interacted and lived with the environment.

Tarisse composes traditional Aboriginal iconography in sharp white lines, circles, arcs and dots often upon a single colour canvas to create a bold aesthetic that has a foot in the contemporary art aesthetic and the traditional.  Song lines that ancestors once walked run across the canvas in different directions, the spaces created by this are filled with concentric circles representing different family clans or ‘life forces’, symbols for food and shelter.  Well balanced, the canvas has a graphic look and a contemporary feel, indicative of Tarisse’s ability to make the ancient appear new.

Handing Down

Many of the stories told by Tarisse King through her artwork were handed down directly by her father, the late William King Jungala. After William passed away Tarisse would feel connected to her father through her artwork but she always felt a longing to connect more with her Australian Indigenous culture. 

Tarisse regularly travels back to her ancestors lands, the Gurindji country. And now she brings her 3 daughters. Tarisse has enjoyed sharing the stories and history of their Gurindji Ancestors. This new series of artworks are a representation of these trips and the handing down of the stories to her children.

Sarrita King | Waterhole

Sarrita paints the naturally occurring waterholes she remembers travelling around Alice Springs and Katherine. The scarcity of drinking water in certain regions means specific knowledge of where these waterholes are located, as well as their preservation methods, is paramount to survival. Today, Aborigines speak of where waterholes once were as many of them have dried up due to drought or diminished maintenance. When Sarrita traveled to see the waterholes with her father she saw many of them dried up and this is what she paints. Represented by the concentric circles, the waterholes are fed by underground streams pushing through land and rock. Sarrita shows these streams by ribbons of wavy lines intricately entwined across the canvas as muddy and dried ochre colours, just as she experienced them.

Artist: Sarrita King

Title: Language of the Earth I

Medium: Sculpture, Metal, Patina

Size: 48x37x12cm

Year: 2020

With this sculpture Sarrita wanted to translate he ‘Language of the Earth” story into a 3D object. The choice to use metal is a reflection on the strength and longevity of the Australian Indigenous culture and the stories passed down over the centuries. The rust is a reflection of the age of the markings and long history of these stories.

Sarrita King | Language of the Earth

This is the earth’s story. It is also the story of black and white upon the land and the history we have created and carved into it by our interactions with one another. The intersections of black and white culture and how they meet, creating a narrative in the land and in history, and then moving on in their individual and collaborative journeys are abstractly depicted. These paintings thematically diverge from Sarrita’s elemental inspired series. In an abstract way Sarrita references the iconography of the Tingari creation ancestors with her use of strong rectangles. These are then given body with dots and dashes, similar to Morse code. These symbols of communication are haunting in their familiarity, like an ancient language that was once known but now sits dormant at the back of one’s memory. The overall aesthetic is bold and assertive, and just like much iconography in Aboriginal cultures, the ancient now appears contemporary.

Title: My Country Cooloman

Medium: Sculpture, Metal, Natural Tarnish

Size: 69x18x9cm

Year: 2020

With this sculpture Tarisse wanted to translate her ‘My Country’ story into a 3D object. The choice to use metal is a reflection on the strength and longevity of the Australian Indigenous culture and the stories passed down over the centuries. The natural tarnish is a reflection of the age of the markings and long history of these stories.

My Country

Driven to map the country around Katherine, where her ancestors once walked, Tarisse depicts land formations such as rivers, rock holes, billabongs, shelters, tracks and food sources.  In this series, Tarisse visually explores the way her ancestors interacted and lived with the environment.

Tarisse composes traditional Aboriginal iconography in sharp white lines, circles, arcs and dots often upon a single colour canvas to create a bold aesthetic that has a foot in the contemporary art aesthetic and the traditional.  Song lines that ancestors once walked run across the canvas in different directions, the spaces created by this are filled with concentric circles representing different family clans or ‘life forces’, symbols for food and shelter.  Well balanced, the canvas has a graphic look and a contemporary feel, indicative of Tarisse’s ability to make the ancient appear new.

Our Land

In the ‘Our Land’ imagery Sarrita is telling the story of the many paths taken when someone leaves their homeland but always feeling connected to their community. In the painting the thick circle represents the homeland and the delicate lines represent the crisscrossing pathways across the land. The many pathways and the ‘tears’ in the pathways and extra layers remind us this journey has been going on with our ancestors throughout humanity.

 TK&SK | My Country’s Story

This style is a collaborative combining Tarisse’s My Country style and Sarrita’s Language of the Earth style. The painting shows the tearing away of the land, specifically areas around Katherine to reveal the Earth’s story. The history of the land where we come from connects us to our family, our culture and all living things. Sarrita seeks to express her impression of the land and some of its stories. The symbols within the painting are patterns for the viewer to connect with but the layout of the painting has its own story.
