By translating her artworks into a collection of custom-designed rugs, Tamika Grant- Iramu’s unique artistic style brings together diverse communities of people. The rug, often placed in a domestic or commercial setting, becomes the celebratory heart of a gathering.
Many people are emotionally fulfilled when viewing or being present in natural environments. By incorporating a wide range of organic patterns and imagery, Tamika’s artwork aims to include all communities of people through this relatable connection to nature. With four designs – Complex Ecologies, Changing Seasons, Native Resonances and Propagation – Tamika’s collection of rugs becomes one organic body of work, following her journey through native and introduced plant life from both botanical gardens and the natural ecologies of Meanjin/Brisbane.
