Art Mark Gallery is proud to announce its Grand Opening in Fyshwick. Art Mark Gallery specialises in ethically sourced Indigenous Art. We are members of the Indigenous Art Code and work closely with Indigenous artists, community-based art centres and Indigenous owned businesses.
Our opening exhibition is the King sisters, Sarrita and Tarisse King who have their Aboriginal heritage from the Gurindji clan, which is located far to the south west of Katherine in the Northern Territory. Sarrita King and Tarisse King are the daughters of the highly regarded Aboriginal artist, William King Jungala (1966 – 2007).
Sarrita King and Tarisse King grew up in Darwin in the Northern Territory, where connections to Aboriginality and the land were nurtured. Experiences of extreme weather and primal landscape have provided some of the artistic themes for the work. The paintings provide a personal visual articulation of the earth’s language, where the artists seek to visually communicate the inspiration and ties to the land and keep their ancestral narrative alive by finding new ways to bring the knowledge of the past into the present world.
