The project is about identity of yolngu women and this group of print makers.
The skirts we all wear everyday for work are always bright and colourful long skirts, with different design and patterns. We put the skirt designs with our faces through the screenprinting process as an exploration of identity.
The skirt design is Gurtha – fire and this design belongs to my mothers clan Gumatj. I chose light pink for the background followed by dark pink and orange.
I love making screen prints because of the clarity of the layers and the process has fewer variables in it.
