Kulyakartu Ngurra Tie by Wokka Taylor | One of Twelve

One of Twelve

$70.00

A beautiful silk tie featuring the artwork of Martumilli artist Wokka Taylor. The tie is 100% silk satin with cotton padding and silk lining.  All of the ties come in a beautiful gift box and include an artist's card, detailing the artist's work and practice. This work depicts Kulyakartu, a significant site in the far north of the Martu homelands. During pujiman (traditional, desert dwelling) times, Taylor and his family travelled to Kulyakartu in the wet season to take advantage of the vast grassy planes that made for excellent hunting. Wokka and his brother Muuki, also an artist, are highly regarded senior Martu men. Together, they hold an encyclopaedic knowledge of Martu Country, including a deep understanding of the ecology and biodiversity of their land. In collaborative works, the brothers have been known to chart the intricate network of underground waters sustaining their Country. Taylor’s signature style features densely layered dot work that flows rhythmically across the canvas, suggesting warm winds moving gently over sandhills or soft desert grasses. In this work, Taylor lovingly traces sinuous blue lines that snake their way across the plush grasslands of Kulyakartu, conjuring images of subterranean waters that support the fragile biodiversity of this site.
