Two paintings by an Indigenous Australian artist, seen side by side. The paintings are predominately green; each has three areas of green tones. Other areas of the paintings are black. There is a rough black border around each painting. Some highlights in pale green and white are visible around the upper green areas of the right side artwork. The left side artwork has some white marks in the bottom left and bottom right, over some of the green tones. The abstract shapes in each painting have light and dark tones in them. The paintings are in portrait format ie the vertical sides are longer than the horizontal sides.
