Ned Kelly

This series of comedic drypoints, linocuts and etchings were created following a research trip to Australia. Having seen Ned Kelly’s armour and death mask in Melbourne Library , I decided to read about his life. The juxtaposition of his murders, cult like stars among the poor and his eventual execution, fed my imagination. The prints tell of his endeavours in the outback and the creation of his criminal outfit.
