Abstract Saturday: Elisabeth Cummings

Cummings is an Australian artist born in 1934. She's been painting since the 1950s, quietly and with a small but devoted following. Now in her 70s, she lives an idyllic life in a kind of artists' community in the west of Sydney, while her work gets better than ever.

Abstract Saturday: Yvonne Audette

Born in 1930, Audette has been called Australia's greatest living abstract expressionist. Laboring in relative obscurity throughout the later 20th century, she finally gained the attention she deserved after a major book on her work was published in 2003: Yvonne Audette Paintings and Drawings 1949-2014 by Christopher Heathcote. Her early influence was Cezanne through her teacher John Passmore.
