Nomad Art, Darwin
Inspired by the mangroves and tropical ecologies of Darwin, Talitha Kennedy has taken the aesthetic of fecundity to heart. Talitha’s drawings are elaborate ink on paper doodles, working between conscious thought and raw instinct to evoke intimate landscapes suggestive of plant, body and earth as transforming mass.
Her artistic practice examines the human relationship with wild nature. Living in the tropics has resulted in direct and tangible influence on her art. Drawings and sculptures interpret the aesthetics of fecundity and the tension between human culture and natural forces.
