Contemporary Collectors Editions


"...two mirrored narratives unfold simultaneously in glorious technicolour, high-definition…a kind of seduction that culminates in a passionate act, the destruction of a waratah, that most exotic Indigenous flower, symbolic of an internal struggle with the external world. It is richly complex, like all of Barton’s work."

 - Alison Kubler, 2014 Adelaide Biennial of Australian Art: Dark Heart exhibition catalogue

The Art Gallery of South Australia is offering you the opportunity to purchase limited edition prints by Dark Heart and Archibald Prize winning artist Del Kathryn Barton.

Barton has created three editions of eight which are exclusively available for purchase at the Art Gallery of South Australia. Each of the three images is a still from Barton’s first moving image work, the human dress , a collaboration with celebrated film maker Brendan Fletcher. Produced especially for the 2014 Adelaide Biennial of Australian Art , the human dress is a companion piece to Barton’s colossal painting the heart land , which also features in Dark Heart

This is a rare opportunity to take home a limited edition by one of Australia's leading contemporary artists while also supporting the Art Gallery of South Australia Contemporary Collectors.

The editions are unframed giclée prints, 90 x 50cm. Each print is available for purchase at $2,200.

Barton’s accolades are numerous. In 2013 she was awarded the Archibald Prize for her portrait of Hugo Weaving, making her the first female two-time Prize winner in the Archibald’s history. She has work in major collections both nationally and internationally, including at the Art Gallery of South Australia. Barton has exhibited extensively with exhibitions in Hong Kong, New Zealand and Germany.
