eX de Medici and Ros Atkins

eX de Medici and Ros Atkins have been working on a collaborative project at the Art Vault, Mildura.

Here is a sneak peak at the etchings in their first state. These were produced during a two week residency at Art Vault in early July. The artists have since been working on each others plates and will edition the finished plates back at Art Vault in early January 2011 (each print will be an edition of 20).

We look forward to the finished works!
