Elisabeth Cummings

Born in Brisbane in 1934, Elisabeth Cummings is now one of Australia's most respected living artists. Cummings works quietly and consistently. While her work is influenced by landscape – or the idea of place – her process is led by intuition.

She is a master of line and colour, which guide her somewhat abstracted paintings and drawings. Embedded within the abstracted works are hints of place – the odd tree or shape of a building and road – which reflect the slow reveal of her time in the landscape.

Cummings has won the Fleurieu Art Prize, The Portia Geach Portrait Prize, The Mosman Prize, and The Tattersalls Art Prize. Her work is held in private and public collections including The Queensland Art Gallery, The Gold Coast City Art Gallery and the Art Gallery of New South Wales.
