THE KENNEDY PRIZE
THIS WILD SONG
So thrilled to be part of the This Wild Song exhibition being show at The Art Room. The exhibition was part of the launch of the website and forum to support the project.
This Wild Song (TWS) is a series of portraits and interviews with Australian women visual artists who have a unique voice.
The theme of the portraits is for the artist to become a part of their work. The photographs also hold the intention of creating an honest and true depiction of who the artist is as a person. Every portrait has a specific concept created for the artist, and significance is placed on all elements within the photograph in relation to the artist and their practice.
TWS celebrates the strong female leaders in the arts community. Although the artists being featured are from varying backgrounds, use a diverse range of mediums, and at different stages of their arts career; they are unified by their unique voices and distinct style. The inclusion of so many artistic mediums in TWS offers a broad synopsis of contemporary Australian art.

The theme for 2009 is I Paint Because…
I paint because…
I have a profound love of paint. I love feeling in control of the medium but also being completely controlled by it. I adore the intimacy and immediacy of the medium. I relish the capacity for boldness and courage that it allows, but also the amazing sensitivity and tenderness that is possible.
The intimacy of the medium enables me to celebrate the sensitivity and beauty of the female figure. It allows me to explore works that depict beauty, grace and harmony and to present an intimate look at womanhood. My work explores and honors unique female artforms and iconography and I see a strong relationship between the intensity of the needle and the concentration of the paintbrush.
