Dorothy Berry

Dorothy Berry is a painter who approaches her practice with great passion. This is evident in the energy and vibrancy of her images. The work demonstrates a keen interest in animals, and often employs them in a symbolic sense. Berry has developed an intricate set of signs in order to construct personal narratives and her work often recounts an experience, event, belief or opinion relating to her life. Her densely packed compositions frequently consist of an accumulation of these incidents or symbols, instilling the works with personal significance. Dorothy Berry (born 1942) has been a regular studio artist at Arts Project Australia since 1985, and presented four solo exhibitions at Arts Project Australia including; ‘Dorothy Berry – Bird on a Wire’ (2009); ‘A Survey 1987-2002’ (2002); and ‘Recent Works’ (1998). She has been included in numerous group exhibitions including ‘My Puppet, My Secret Self’, The Substation, Newport; ‘Inside Out/Outside In’, Access Gallery, National Gallery of Victoria, Melbourne; and ‘Turning the Page’, Gallery 101, Ottawa, Ontario, Canada. Her work is held in the National Gallery of Australia Collection, Canberra, and MADmusée, Lèige.
