Ruby Tjangawa Williamson and Wawiriya Burton are senior law women committed to fostering traditional culture, storytelling, dancing and painting. This is the first time the two artists have collaborated. Williamson began painting in 2000 at Minymaku Arts (now Tjala Arts) and her distinctive works have received increasing attention. Burton started painting in 2008, originally specialising in baskets and punu (wood) carvings. Here, they have depicted two trees – ultukumpu and kalingkalingpa – from the country where they were born near Irrunytju community, Western Australia.
