Sarrita King Date of Birth 1988 NT
Sarrita’s paintings have an extraordinary discipline behind them, no doubt this comes from in part her famous father William King, sadly deceased.
She belongs to the Gurindji Tribe located near Katherine in the Northern Territory. Her paintings are inspired by the land and the environment where she grew up.
Sarrita is not only an accomplished artist she is also a recognised sportswomen being accepted into The Australian Institute of Sport in Adelaide.
She has a genuine connection to the land, as a child she was fascinated by the monsoonal storms found in the Top End of Australia. She would find new designs and colours each time these wet season storms occurred.
The very fine and intricate dotwork all with a short and precise flick up or down at the end of her application creates an illusion of movement and along with the acrylic paint she uses, her pictures give off a warm shimmering contemporary appeal.
