A special collaborative work by sisters Tarisse King and Sarrita King

 

 

This special piece is a collaborative work by sisters Tarisse King and Sarrita King. 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. 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. Overall the effect is a sense of the land being torn away to reveal the Earth’s ancient stories.
