MASTERPIECE: Del Kathryn Barton I have come to tell you that I have freed myself. You too can do the same 2005-2006

Smith & Singer is honoured to present I have come to tell you that I have freed myself. You too can do the same, 2005-2006, by renowned contemporary artist Del Kathryn Barton, within our forthcoming private auction on Wednesday 5 August 2020.  

An extraordinary composition, the work has no singular reading except that of the feminine subject, who at the centre of this world – one of flux and wonderment – remains constant, unassailable.  Del Kathryn Barton has worked across all media, from painting, drawing and sculpture, to film, fashion, photography and collage.  Her work is singular and expressive and her appeal to collectors is far-reaching.  Barton has won the Archibald Prize twice: in 2008 with You are what is most beautiful about me, a self portrait with Kell and Arella (2008, Private Collection) and in 2013, with Hugo (2013, Private Collection).  To win Australia’s most prestigious art prize is significant, but to have won twice, confirms her place in the collective mind of the Australian public.
