Momentary Tremors. "Yvonne Audette: Paintings and Drawings 1949-2003" by Christopher Heathcote et al. [review]
The term "lost in translation" does not apply to this book, especially considering the deft ways in which each of the writers has contextualised Yvonne Audette’s art, but has not lost in their translations of her practice the lyricism and understatement in her work, and the ultimately mysterious internal impulses that have driven Audette through five decades of creative enterprise. For some viewers, Audette’s is, or could be, an uneasy art. The pleasant surprise in this book is its balance of scholarship against its evocation of the poetics and introspection of an artist’s vision and visual life. This is another valuable, superbly researched contribution to Australian art histories.
