TJARLIRLI ART
paintings
31 May - 23 July 2016

We are very pleased to present this selection of paintings from Tjarlirli Art, incuding Nyarapayi Giles, Valmayi Nampitjinpa, Esther Giles, Katjarra Butler, and Bob Gibson.

Tjarlirli Art is located in the remote Ngannyatjarra lands of Western Australia. Despite its small size, it is one of Australia's most dynamic Aboriginal art centres. While several of Tjarlirli artists are connected to Papunya Tula Artists - some have lived or painted there, and many have family in Papunya - their style is bolder, looser and brighter. Here, colour takes on a life of its own.

In recent years Tjarlirli has distinguished itself by regularly having its artists selected for important art prizes and acquisitions by public museums. Tjarlirli offers collectors echos of classic Western Desert painting combined with "Now-ness" of 21st century contemporary painting.

For more information on the artists, please contact us. Selected artist bios are published on this website along with earlier works, some of which are available for sale.
