Artist: Mersane Loban

Lives in Kubin Village on Moa Island, Torres Strait.

Ipika is our language word for women. Since returning to Mua Island in 2011, I have reflected much on the role of women in the Torre Strait and how we have shaped our past, provide strength for the challenges facing us in the present and are the foundation for our future. I felt so strongly about this that I decided to create a series of 6 prints depicting the role of women: Ipika Suite
