Event description

Description

Born in East Berlin, Kathrin Longhurst’s figurative realist painting style is heavily influenced by socialist realism of that era. She moved to Scandinavia in her teens where she completed a business degree and started practicing her art full-time in 2003 after having settled in Australia. She is now based in Sydney with her works being collected nationally and internationally. She completed her 14th solo show in 2018 and has been a finalist in all major Australian Art Prizes. Her work is represented in the Bennett Collection of Women Realist Artists.

In her talk Kathrin will touch on what life was like under a totalitarian regime and how the imagery from her childhood has informed her current art practice. She will also explain how she uses the visual language of socialist realism and propaganda in her paintings to drive her passion for gender equality and women’s advancement.
