Yarli x Artesands Collaboration

Our Artesands Local Artist Project is something we hold close to our hearts, we support local artists through our swimwear and ready to wear prints. We are very excited to have collaborated with Yarli creative for our new release in February.   

Yarli is an Aboriginal artist, illustrator and designer specialising in contemporary pieces. This design studio has been created by the talented Madison Connors of Yorta Yorta, Dja Dja Wurrung and Gamilaroi women.   

From the artist, Madison Connors:

The art piece I have created holds the meaningful title of “Wuk-tjarra,” which beautifully translates to “Give Each Other,” “One Another,” or “Exchange” in the sacred Dja Dja Wurrung language. This title carries profound significance as it encapsulates the essence of exchanging ourselves with others, the land, and the vibrant tapestry of communities that surround us. It serves as a powerful reminder that through these interactions, our knowledge is shared, nurtured, and allowed to flourish, benefiting from the collective support of those who walk alongside us.   

When gazing upon this artwork, your eyes will be drawn to the upside-down “U” shapes that gracefully traverse the piece. These shapes serve as poignant representations of people, symbolizing the interconnectedness and interdependence that defines our human existence. Each individual holds a unique story, perspective, and contribution to make, and through the act of giving and receiving, we create a rich and diverse tapestry of experiences.   

As your gaze continues to explore the intricate details of the piece, you will discover a delicate interplay of arrows scattered throughout. These arrows, meticulously woven into the artwork, hold a deeper significance as they trace the footsteps of my ancestral totem, the noble emu. The emu, revered in my culture, embodies wisdom, resilience, and a deep connection to the land. Its presence within the artwork symbolizes the profound relationship we share with our natural surroundings and the wisdom passed down through generations.   

In the delicate dance between the upside-down “U” shapes and the emu’s footsteps, a story unfolds—a story of unity, cultural heritage, and the transformative power of exchange. This artwork serves as a testament to the beauty that emerges when diverse perspectives, knowledge, and experiences are embraced, honoured, and shared. It is a visual representation of the collective growth and enrichment that occurs when we open ourselves to learning from one another and the land we inhabit.   

As you engage with this artwork, I invite you to immerse yourself in its narrative, to contemplate the significance of exchange, and to celebrate the beauty that arises when cultures intertwine. May it serve as a reminder that true understanding and appreciation emerge when we engage in respectful dialogue, recognizing the value of each other’s stories and contributions.
