Abstract

 Over the last four decades Tasmanian born artist Bea Maddock has produced an impressive body of work that stands outside the usual measure of the art world. Intensely personal, yet universal in their concerns, Maddocks prints, artist's books, sculpture and painting are distinguished by impeccable craft and unflinching honesty. The National Gallery of Australia, who was the beneficiary of a major gift of works by the artist, has an almost complete set of her etchings, woodcuts, lithographs, and monotypes. This exhibition was organised by the National Gallery of Australia and the Queensland Art Gallery.
