Dorothy Berry (b 1942, Melbourne) is an established artist who approaches her practice with great passion. Her paintings and drawings have energy that evokes an emotional response. Her keen interest in animals and birds is employed symbolically—she has developed a complex set of signs to construct personal narratives. Berry has worked at Arts Project since 1985 with four solo exhibitions presented in Melbourne. She has been featured in major group exhibitions nationally and internationally, with work in the MADmusée in Belgium, National Gallery of Australia and National Gallery of Victoria as well as private collections worldwide.
