From 1982–2020, Nixon produced over 500 printed images in relief, intaglio, stencil and planographic processes. While many of the works in his print oeuvre are unique, Nixon also produced works in small editions. This publication, produced by Negative Press Melbourne, documents two exhibitions of Nixon’s editions that were exhibited at Negative Press. The publication features works made across the artists career, alongside personal responses to the prints by Sue Cramer, Elizabeth Boon and Trent Walter.

John Nixon (1949 - 2020) was a seminal figure in contemporary Australian abstraction. From 1968, his work was dedicated to the on-going experimentation, analysis and development of radical modernism, minimalism, the monochrome, constructivism, non-objective art and the ready-made; which were key reference points in his work. Experimental Painting Workshop (EPW), which the artist named in 1990, but which covers works dating back to 1968, formed the basis of Nixon’s rigorous and long-standing intellectual investigation into the making of art, which over time expanded to encompass not only painting, but collage, photography, video, dance and experimental music performance.
