Tamika Grant-Iramu is a Meanjin/Brisbane-based artist who incorporates organic patterns and imagery though the medium of relief print carving techniques. Tamika’s practice focuses on native and introduced flora, and highlights the minute details in nature that are so often unnoticed.
Through her creative practice, Tamika explores her identity, seeking ways to connect with the different threads of her Papua New Guinean, European and Torres Strait Islander heritage. Tamika’s unique artistic style brings together diverse communities of people, and through this collection aims to highlight the rug as the celebratory heart of a gathering.
“Propagation” describes the variety of flora found within the inner-city botanical gardens of Meanjin/Brisbane. Tamika uses repeated lines to create a design that allows one plant (one story) to finish as another plant begins its new story. The narratives within this design highlight the complexities of nature and evoke the way individual city dwellers live, converse and interact with each other within the presence of nature, art and design.
