'Tirrintirri (Burdekin Ducks)' 2023-05-19
The Burdekin Duck is a rich food source for the Tiwi people. Janice Murray is reknowned for her depictions of the vast array of birdlife that inhabit the Tiwi Islands. While drawing on the plates for this image Janice was thinking of her son Claude, therefore the image of a mother and baby. This original limited edition print was made as a result of Janice being awarded the 2017 APW Collie Print Trust Fellowship. Janice was artist in residence in May 2017 and worked in collaboration with Senior Printers Martin King and Simon White at the Australian Print Workshop based in Melbourne, to produce a major body of works. The end product was exhibited in a solo exhibition at the APW from July – September 2017 titled Tokapuwi (Big Mob of Birds).
