Janice Woods

Janice Woods is a Pitjantjatjara woman living in Kanpi community, a small settlement in the far north west of South Australia. Her mother is Elaine Woods and her grandmother is Maringka Baker, both renown painters in their own right.


Janice paints the story of two women travelling.  Painted on the canvas as U shapes are the women and the terrain they traversed.  As the women passed through various countries they transformed into different animal forms.  No further detail to the story was provided as it is of a sacred and therefore secret nature.  Janice captures the textured geology of her own Pitjantjatjara country, in particular the Musgrave Ranges.  The reds, oranges and yellows of the rocky outcrops, the undulations and rock holes are captured by Janice in this important story.
