A practical and fun way to dry the dishes, this humble tea towel can also be stretched onto a canvas at your local framer and double up as an affordable artwork for your home. This towel from Australian artist Kaylene Whiskey features women who have been an important part of her life, including "pop stars like Dolly Parton and Tina Turner, superheroes like Wonder Woman and strong influences for me like my mother and aunties."
Kaylene Whiskey was born in Indulkana, a remote Aboriginal community in South Australia. She is part of Iwantja Arts, a collective based in the Indulkana Community. Having spent her childhood steeped in 1980s pop culture, Whiskey creates paintings using bright colors to render beloved figures in flat pictorial space and engaging with her life in rural Australia. The comic book-like worlds on her canvases are instantly nostalgic and captivating.
