Cornelia Tipuamantumirri Winga (Tidal Movement/Waves) 2012
Ochre on linen 1200 x 400mm $1848 including resale royalty
This work depicts the tidal movement of waters in and around the seas and creeks of the Tiwi Islands. Not just influencing fishing and
hunting opportunities, the movement of water carries masses of silt and sand, transforming the land and changing the coastal landscape.
Winga can also be translated as 'waves', just one part of the changing tides. Tidal surges are at their most powerful when a king tide
occurs during the Wet Season.
