serigraph, edition 9
29.5" x 34"
Diamonds is a five-colour serigraph that is indicative of Elizabeth’s work; it is a serendipitous geometric abstraction with soft edges and bold colours. The artist’s decision to print this edition full-bleed is a painterly one, and it pushes up against the traditions of printmaking. This contemporary approach suits the work’s clean, modern aesthetic.
