Del Kathryn Barton
Born in 1972, Sydney, Australia. Lives and works in Sydney, Australia
The two-time Archibald prize winner is best known for her highly detailed and vibrant figurative paintings that draw upon strong female figures and personal and idiosyncratic musings concerning desire, sex, motherhood and the natural world.
In her new series of works for Asia Now Paris 2018, Barton places the female figure in focus. Populated by precisely painted "she beast" creatures, the artist presents a selection of large and small-scale paintings accompanied by two major bronze sculptures that extend her imaginative, creative vision in three-dimensions.
