Lily Kelly Napangardi BIOGRAPHY 

RETURN TOP

Lily Kelly Napangardi  is a distinguished Aboriginal artist born around 1948 n the Haasts Bluff region of the Northern Territory of Australia.

 

Lily Kelly Napangardi top-quality ‘Sand Hills' paintings have the sheer physical presence of the much contemporary work of art. The finesse of Lily's style creates a wonderful lyricism in her work and the muted tones show a mysterious topography of the land and rain. Lily uses a technique of tiny microcosmic dots and dashes, intricate subtle details that move with the viewer’s eyes. Her 'Sand-hill' paintings are usually white dots on black background, but some rarer examples of her work are painted black dots on white background, presenting an almost three-dimensional illusion of space and depth.

In earlier years, Napangardi lived with her family at the settlement of Papunya, later moved to Watiyawanu (Mount Liebig - 325 km west of Alice Springs) (with her husband Norman Kelly, also an artist). Napangardi is a respected senior law woman of her community of Watiyawanu, and the custodian over the Women's Dreamtime stories associated with Kunajarrayi.

Lily Kelly Napangardi began painting in the early 1980s. She won the Northern Territory Art Award for Excellence in Aboriginal Painting in 1986 and was a finalist in the Telstra National Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Art Award (NATSIAA) in 2003. In January 2006, she was named as one of Australia’s 50 most collectable artists by Australian Art Collector magazine.

Napangardi's paintings are of her country, especially of the sand hills (Tali) around Mount Liebig. They are usually done in white (sometimes, red or yellow) dots on black background, presenting an almost three-dimensional illusion of space and depth. Some rarer examples of her work are painted in two colours (mainly white and red) on black background. Today Lily Kelly Napangardi's art is recognised as some of the most innovative in the contemporary Aboriginal art scene. It is highly sought-after by museums and private collectors worldwide.

Lily Kelly Napangardi is one of the most important Australian artists. In 1986 Lily won the Northern Territory Art Award for Excellence in Aboriginal Painting, in 2003 was a finalist in the Telstra National Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Art Award and in 2006 was named one of the Australia’s top 50 most collectible artists.

Lily Kelly Napangardi work has the physical presence of the much contemporary work of art. The finesse of Lily's style creates a wonderful lyricism in her work, the muted tones show a mysterious topography of the land and rain. Lily uses a time consuming technique of tiny dots and dashes, and the intricate subtle details that move with the viewer’s eyes and give the multi-dimensional appearance.  

Born circa 1948  in the Haast Bluff region of the Northern Territory (325 kilometers north-west of Alice Springs) Lily Kelly Napangardi lived at the newly established settlement of Papunya for much of her early life, relocating to Mt Liebig with her husband in the early 1980's. Lily Kelly Napangardi is from Mount Liebig, a senior law woman of the Watiyawanu community, Haasts Bluff. Lily moved to Papunya in the 1960's, and was later noted for the assistance she gave to her husband, the painter Norman Kelly. She began painting in the 1980's.

Lily Kelly Napangardi holds authority over the "Women Dreaming " story associated with Kunajarrayi. Throughout this time Lily assisted her husband Norman Kelly with his paintings, becoming an artist in her own right in 1986 when she began painting for Papunya Tula artists.

Lily depicts stories from the Haasts Bluff and Kunajarrayi region, her traditional country, for the Watyawanu Art Centre. Lily portrays commanding innovative interpretations of her traditional country and holds authority over the Women's Dreaming story associated with Kunajarrayi, and is also teaching younger women traditional dancing and singing. . Her most recent works are skillful representations of sand hills in their various forms. Lily's works are in high demand and are represented in major private and public collections throughout the world.

Her subjects include her country's sand hills, its winds and the desert environment after rain, especially the sandhills of the Kintore and Connistan areas. Her paintings often note the seasonal changes in this sandy landscape, and the crucial waterholes found in the rocks in the area. In this mysterious and elemental landscape, the features, such as rock holes and even mountain ranges, seem to appear and disappear with the changing winds and blowing sands. Water marks this land, as the run-off from the rains makes a pattern of lines and striations down the surface of the sand hills. Napangardi notes the finest microcosmic details but embeds these into a macrocosmic view of the landscape. The ephemeral nature of this drifting, changing country is Lily Kelly Napangardi's key subject, and the viewer, walking in front of her painting, can sense something of the immersive experience of her country.
