Over the last two decades, Elisabeth Cummings has produced an extraordinary body of prints of great authority and power. Much of this activity is due to her collaboration with Cicada Press (UNSW Art and Design, Sydney), who proof and edition her plates. Many of the prints relate to her paintings, while others extend the artist’s already sophisticated grasp of her favoured mediums (predominantly etching, but also monotype and lithography) in original compositions.
The subject of this work relates to the AGNSW’s painting of the same title [252.2005]
