Archibald Prize winner Del Kathryn Barton fascinates me. I've certainly found it difficult to drag myself away from any gallery where I've been lucky enough to see her work in "real life". The colours just seem to twinkle and shimmer, it's really quite magical. Claire Armstrong, from Art and Australia Magazine, put it best when she wrote that Del's paintings 'encapsulate the exciting crossovers between traditional techniques and contemporary design and illustration', something she remarked is a hallmark of much emerging Australian art. Still, I'm yet to find another artist who does it quite so well.
