'The aim of this essay is to consider, with close reading and in the context of feminist theory, the question of representation itself as a central presence in the work of Vicki Viidikas, and to examine how and why her work still holds currency today. A discussion of her work allows for its reappraisal, appropriate in the light of its undervaluation at the time of publication, and relevant with the 2010 publication of a fresh book of her work, New and Rediscovered, edited by Barry Scott (with a foreword by Kerry Leves) and published by Transit Lounge Publishing of Melbourne.'
