Kate is a Brisbane singer ,songwriter,and entertainer who is an amazing performer and who is also our daughter-in-law. She posed for me for this portrait , which I entered in last year’s Archibald Prize.
This portrait has been displayed at the Real Refuses at the T.A. P. gallery in Sydney.
It is a very large painting (1.85cmx 1.25cm) which Is segmented into 24 rectangles —each one showing a different facet of Kate’s complex personality, while the Alice in wonderland refers to her many different personas as she performs.

    This painting is audacious and mesmerizing; the more I look the more I see.

    Thanks James! A lot of the references directly relate to Kate’s personality , but also to her live performances! (you can find her on Myspace)
