Fine Dot Art, NT Cat No. #LKN113/0319FDAFDA
Cooee Art, NSW
This painting depicts the Tali Tali, (Sand Hills) around the artists traditional country located around Mt Liebig, Haasts Bluff, Papunya and Kintore. The dotting represents the shifting sands and landscape. This is where Lily’s ancestors lived, hunted and gathered food. Ceremonies would be performed at sacred creation sites where young women would learn the mythology of how the land was formed and the creeks, plants and animals came into being.
Lilly’s ability to capture movement particularly with her Sand-Hills puts her in an exclusive class of artists, the fine dot and curving lines produces detail in her every hand movement creating the time consuming Western Desert sand hills depicting them in all seasons.Share
