Overview

Images of Ancestors, Land, the elements and Indigenous heritage are at the core of paintings by sisters Sarrita King & Tarisse King.

Sarrita King & Tarisse King share an Indigenous heritage connected to Gurrindji culture at Wave Hill in Central Northern Territory. They share this through their father’s line and combine this with their own upbringing in Darwin and Adelaide, and through travelling the continent and experiencing the great diversity it provides.

Creating canvases that evoke the detail and elemental forces of the Land, the King sisters have paid tribute to their father’s artistic and philosophical ideas. Some of their largest canvases take in the totality of land or fire or water, creating an energetic portrayal of the sustaining elements of nature. The fine detail and the reference to massive forces work together to produce engrossing artworks that can be viewed on a macro or micro level. The infinite layers of dots add up to a massive image of the grand forces at work on the planet.

Having shared studios and collaborated together on single paintings, Sarrita and Tarisse now live over 4000 kms apart. But still they manage to synchronise their lives and their artistic output in order to exhibit together and progress their reputations. They maintain their position as one of Australia’s most exciting and engaging creative teams.

The work of Sarrita King & Tarisse King will be on exhibition in the upstairs galleries at Japingka from 22 September to 31 October.
