Gum nut and Bush Apple
This fabric was created using the linocut printing technique. The lino tile has been carved by the artist in Maningrida, and has been printed by hand using a variety of colours and layers. The linocut technique ensures each textile piece is a one-off, limited edition piece.
Bábbarra Women’s Centre supports the economic independence of Indigenous women in the Arnhem Land community of Maningrida, Northern Territory, Australia. Designs created by the women at Bábbarra reflect strong cultural knowledge, which is passed down to younger generations through their textile design practice.
Soft blue and greys on a bright pink cotton. Janet varies her repeat patterns and works instinctively on each piece of fabric making all of her work deeply connected to her djang (powerful creation spirits). She has a beautiful eye for colour and layout.
