Julie 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.
Julie paints the story of two women travelling. As they travelled across a large expanse of desert, they changed into different animal forms, from goanna to wallaby and so on. This was required to pass through country that wasn’t theirs. Painted on the canvas are the U-shaped symbols representing the two women and the desert terrain they traversed.
