Landscapes of Glowing Splendour

Here is another of my favourite Australian artists – Elisabeth Cummings:

Elisabeth Cummings is one of Australia’s visual art quiet achievers, with a career spanning over 50 years and this major survey, examining her landscape works, is long overdue. Cummings’ landscapes are distinguished by heavily impastoed surfaces and luminous colour, whether depicting the glowing red and yellow ochres of the Pilbara region, the ruggedly spectacular Arkaroola ridges of the Flinders ranges, or the sands of Elcho Island in Arnhem Land. Cummings’ travels are distilled and brought to life in the sanctuary of her idyllic bush studio on Sydney’s outskirts.
