Del Kathryn Barton: The Highway is a Disco
Pip Wallis & Peggy Frew
Del Kathryn Barton continues to evolve her practice in surprising new ways, exploring her inner thoughts and external influences with an untamed curiosity. Her work takes audiences on an exuberant journey through colourful and intricate paintings, collages, drawings, sculptures and films that depict the female form, womanhood, desire, sex, motherhood and the natural world. Del Kathryn Barton: The Highway is a Disco includes some of Del’s most personal works, as well as photographs of her studio and sketchbooks. Curator Pip Wallis writes about symbolism in Barton’s imagery, while Peggy Frew explores women’s experience and the film RED in an interview with the artist.
