Acryl on Linen
90 x 70 cm
Lily’s Sandhills paintings are composed with refined dot work; sprawling across her canvases to create the movement and shifts of sand gliding across dunes with the wind. These paintings show Lily’s depiction of “Tali”, sandhills located near her homelands of Kunantjarra, north west of Nyirrpi and approx 400km west of Alice Springs in Central Australia.

The microscopic dots show the impact of the rain and the wind as it moves across the countryside. The run-off from the rains makes a pattern of lines and furrows down the surface of the sandhills. Lily’s works often note the seasonal changes in this sandy landscape, and more importantly the waterholes found in the rocks in the area. This story was passed to her by her father and the Sandhills are a site of signifi cance for the artist and her family.
