Mountain Devil Lizard

Dreaming (Sandstorm)

Kathleen Petyarre, 1997

Acrylic on Canvas, 60”x 60”





Time Magazines’s art critic, Michael Fitzgerald said, “Petyarre's dotted fields of ocher-red and hailstorm-white conjure up the sensation a passenger might feel in a light plane swooping in to land… they create an effect of spiritual uplift and endlessly eddying space. And infusing much of the work—suggested by a circular dance of footprints here, a cloud of dust there—is the ephemeral presence of Petyarre's custodial totem, the thorny or mountain devil lizard, arnkerrth-a tiny, miraculous creature adept at the art of camouflage and survival.”
