Rarrk (cross hatching) Design

Kuninjku artist Susan Marawarr was born in 1967 into a strong artistic family.  She is the daughter of Anchor Kulunba and Mary Wurrdjedje, and the sister of acclaimed bark painters James Iyuna and John Mawurndjul. Marawarr is an accomplished printmaker, sculptor, weaver and bark painter.  Common subjects of her work include the powerful djang of wak wak, ngalyod and yawkyawk mythologies alongside the imagery of  popular everyday items like dilly bags, fish-traps,  mats and baskets.  She is known for her striking black and white palette.  This combined with her use of deep perspective often creates graphic optical effects, movement and energy in her idiosyncratic works.
