A beautiful silk tie featuring the artwork of Martumilli artist Phyllis Donegan. 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.
Donegan’s painting ‘Walka Wiru Ngura Wiru’ transports us across the vast desert country surrounding the Tomkinson Ranges near the artist’s home community of Kalka, in the far north-western reaches of South Australia.
The painting’s title, ‘Walka Wiru Ngura Wiru’ translates into English as, ‘lovely country, lovely drawing’.
Through her skilful use of layering and tonal graduation, Donegan’s work creates an immersive experience – her paint appears to vibrate above the surface of the canvas creating a mesmerising optical effect. In this way, the artist breathes life into the undulating tali (sandhills) and puli (rocky hills) that characterise the sprawling desert country of her homelands.
