„Art history had always been written without women. This will no longer be possible. Since early 1967, Mimi has blazed a trail, now taken by many of her fellow artists. She is the artist who more than anyone else, has pioneered the mainstream art form of lyrical abstraction in Australia. She is a big contribution to our culture.“

Sandra McGrath, Sydney art critics, St. George & Sutherland Shire Leader


I consider Lyrical Abstraction to be a direct descendant from Surrealism rather than from Tachism, Abstract Expressionism and Action Painting; patience is one of its virtues, and quiet acceptance. Tachism, though, that encourages art to grow from a small seed, is a first cousin to Lyrical Abstraction.
