"Sandra Leveson is one of Australia's most distinctive contemporary women artists. This creator of luminescent paintings has pursued her career for more than thirty years. In the 1960s she was influenced by Geometric Op and in the 1970s by American Abstract Expressionism. Latterly her work has developed into an individual style that pays heed to both the European and Australian landscapes. Her work is informed by the Soft European light and by Australia's vibrant atmosphere. Leveson utilises the specific iconography of the Flanders poppy and the endless Antipodean horizon line but her work remains intriguingly non-specific in its geographical orientation."--BOOK JACKET.
