Untitled - Tali (Sandhills) near Mt Leibig, 2011

182 x 121 cmAcrylic on Linen
This painting by Lily Kelly Napangardi depicts the Sandhills near Mt Leibig. Her paintings show the shifting sands in the wind or the veils of rain across the sand. She uses fine bamboo sticks to render the fine dots in decreasing size.When viewed at a distance in their entirety her paintings evoke a sense of movement, capturing what would be the perspective of looking at the desert sand from above.
