The Final Frame in a bold body of work
Gina McColl, The Age, Melbourne, 19 January 2013, pp. 16-17ARTIST Polixeni Papapetrou was told in October that she was free of the breast cancer that was discovered in 2007. She celebrated the five-year all-clear by buying new clothes and tickets to the Francis Bacon exhibition in Sydney. A month later, sudden and severe symptoms sent her to hospital. She was told the cancer had returned in her peritoneum - the lining of the gastrointestinal tract - and that it was terminal and untreatable.
