“Go ask those fellas what they call those talking water places” was a statement that resonated with Jacinda Bayne whilst discussing her latest collection of work with friend and Aboriginal Artist Toogarr Morrison.

“I was searching for the one common thread that tied my narrative of thoughts, experiences and emotions together and Toogarr helped me realise it” said the 2011 Mandjar Art Award winner. Immediately she knew that her experience had been one shaped and formed by water and it’s effect on the Kimberley.

Artist in Residence onboard the True North, Jacinda was inspired by the huge tidelines, majestic waterfalls and the way the water flowed over the ancient land forms.

This translated in her studio with her use of rich, intense colours and thin glazes of paint, watching it run over the surface of the canvas like the water to create energy and movement.

“Colour , I believe creates emotion, and touches all of us. I try to devise a language through colour in which everyone can connect in some way. When the viewer gets that connection, I feel I have achieved what I set out to do.”
