Silk Tie - Untitled by Kumanjayi Jurra

Kumanjayi Jurra Tjapaltjarri’s untitled painting refers to Yunala, a creek and rockhole site-complex, west of Kiwirrkura in Western Australia. During ancestral times, a large group of Tingari men stopped at this site to dig for the edible roots of the bush banana, known as yunala (Marsdenia australis), which is abundant in this area. After their feast, the men continued travelling north-east to Tarkul, north of Winparku (Mt Webb). The Tingari Cycle is secret-sacred in nature, but in general, the Tingari are a group of ancestral beings who traversed the country, shaping the landscape through their travels.

Kumanjayi’s work is characterised by intricate, rhythmic linework, and a subtlety of palette. This work is no exception – the artist’s use of a burnt orange underpainting tempers the flow of the blue-grey surface layer, suggesting the seasonal movements of the ephemeral desert waterways. Joseph favours large scale canvases that he painstakingly details with ripples of linework layered with dots. The grand scale of his works evoke an atmospheric viewpoint, reminding us of the vastness of the landscape and our fleetingness within it.

100% silk satin with cotton padding and silk lining.

All ties come in a beautiful gift box and include an artist’s card, detailing the artist’s work and practice.
