    "South Morang. This was an area I was taken to as a child for a picnic. All the shapes and forms unfolded themselves and a man was actually working in his cabbage patch. I tried new colour harmonies and greater abstraction overall. Of the collection this print probably gave me the greatest pleasure to produce. It certainly was the most difficult to do".

    Alan Sumner quoted in Roger Butler, 'Alan Sumner screenprints: A catalogue Raisonné', Eastgate Gallery, Melbourne, 1993
