Lilly Kelly Napangardi

Lilly began painting for Papunya Tula in the mid 1980’s. Lilly’s mesmerising ‘Sand Hills’ paintings are made up of fine dots diminishing in size building up a mysterious, hidden topography of her land.  The dots show the impact of the rain and wind as it moves across the land. This story was passed to her by her father, the sand hills (Tali) are sites of significance for the artist and her family. Lilly is one of the senior Law Women of her community, teaching the younger women traditional hunting, cooking, dancing and singing.
