Timothy Cook Biography

Aboriginal artist, Timothy Cook began exhibiting his work in the late 1990's in group shows around Australia including Darwin, Melbourne, Alice Springs and Perth.

His work depicts the body designs used in the Pukamani ceremony, the traditional Tiwi burial ceremony, one of the cornerstones of the Tiwi's traditional belief.

His art is also closely linked to stories of Purrukuparli, the Tiwi mythological ancestor and is characterised by a geometric structure of lines and dots with every line and marking having an important meaning. These geometric patterns, common in all Tiwi art, often depict sites of stories of mythological significance involving ancestors who were changed into animals or birds. Each Tiwi artist has their own individual interpretation of the designs.
