Kelly Peterman

Kelly has been painting with Tjarlirli Art since its incorporation in 2006. Kelly is a senior law man, who’s passion and love for his country manifests in his paintings in a strength of form and array of stunning colour. Kelly paints the tjukurrpa from his country around the Docker River community where he lives with his wife Mary Gibson and family. Kelly often travels to Tjukurla to visit family and to engage in meetings at Tjarlirli Art in his role as director.

Ngintaka

Kelly’s Tjukurrpa is of the country around Kaltukatjara, NT. Just there is a big hill, with Ngintaka Dreaming, and this is that story. The ngintaka (perentie lizard) made the country seem to be moving like this, with his body.
