  • Catalogue Essay

    "This composite print is closely related to a painting, Footscray, and drawing Jabiro (Balken 1986, p. 38), from the artist's 1985 Austria series. The print features a paper relief (made from embossed leaves), a formal device related to the aluminum reliefs Graves has frequently added to her paintings since 1983." - Thomas Padon, Nancy Graves Excavations in Print: a Catalogue Raisonné, p. 114
