Shop current artworks by Delvine Petyarre

Intricate white dots systematically map out Delvine's country just north of Australia's Eastern Desert. Think dry river beds, yam root systems beneath the ground and travelling tracks – both by car and foot - of her people. 

Delvine, like others, will dab a bamboo satay stick into a pot of paint and use this to create several to a dozen dots before going back for more paint and beginning the process again. 

This process creates areas of thicker consistency where dots appear larger, and other areas where the dots appear smaller and darker; the whole effect creating a twinkling, dotted, three dimensional looking work of art.

The red ochre background in this piece lends an authentic look of the red sand country.
