Bush flower

A textured linocut design depicting a white bush flower. Lucy is a talented artist working at Babbarra Women’s Centre, highly skilled at mixing and layering colour.

Green, yellow pink and purple tones on white cotton.

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.
