Tali Tali (Sandhills) showcases vibrant paintings by Alice Nampitjinpa. She was born in 1943 near Talaalpi, east of Walungurru (Kintore) on the Northern Territory and Western Australian border, and her father, the late Uta Uta Jangala, was one of the founding artists of the Papunya Tula art movement in the 1970s.

In this recent body of work, Nampitjinpa paints sandhills, or Tali Tali, depicted with energetic brushstrokes and a bold palette and demonstrating a keen eye for colour and composition. Her work features in important collections and major institutions including the National Gallery of Australia, Canberra; the National Gallery of Victoria, Melbourne; the Art Gallery of New South Wales, Sydney and the Aboriginal Art Museum in Utrecht, The Netherlands.
