eX de Medici: Beautiful Wickedness’ is a visually stunning and timely book, published to accompany a major retrospective of the celebrated Australian artist’s work. The publication surveys de Medici’s 40-year career, considering the urgent issues she addresses, including the machinations of global politics and commerce, the fragility of the natural world, and the destructive influences of power, conflict and death. ‘Beautiful Wickedness’ highlights the aesthetically enticing qualities that characterise de Medici’s work — epitomised by her meticulous and luscious watercolours — and its unflinching content.
