Pikarong

Pikarong is based on artwork by Lydia Balbal. Lydia's country is near Punmu in the Great Sandy Desert of W.A. Her people's existence was threatened by severe drought so that they had little choice but to leave their traditional country. Piti is the Mangala word for the underground creeks that traverse the Great Sandy Desert. The linear under painting woven across these paintings are the piti as well as the walking and hunting tracks. These work like emotional veins, which underpin the complex, dotted surface she overlays in her signature flickering dot style. Tibetan Wool + Silk 200 x 300cm Can be custom sized.
