Victoria Edwards, Artist

This is one of the prints in our collection. It was made in New Zealand in 1976.
About the Work
"In 1976 Edwards made several series of erotic photo-etchings, using her friends as models. She intended these works to be a tongue-in-cheek parody of the absurdities of `serious' pornography. They were produced in the larger editions made possible by the photolithographic technique. Edwards soon became aware to her dismay that many people took them seriously and saw them as representative of her work."
