I went and saw the Archibald prize at Nowra gallery the other week. It’s wonderful that it is touring the regional galleries. I got to see so many amazing paintings in a small quiet gallery without having to trek up to Sydney. One of my absolute favourite artists was the winner this year – Del Kathryn Barton. I just adore her work. I live how she paints portraits ( very Egon Schiele like) and I love the detailed patterning she creates in her backgrounds. Find more of her work here at the Roslyn Oxley Gallery.
