Elizabeth Gower is one of Australia’s most acclaimed contemporary artists with a career spanning forty years, and as a pioneering feminist artist who emerged in the 1970s, her work has had, and continues to have, an important impact on her peers and younger artists. Gower’s ingenious formal manipulation and transformation of materials is conditioned by her work’s exceptional conceptual rigour.
