Third Drawer Down in collaboration with Del Kathryn Barton are proud to present the My Mother Is Awake Clutch. Inspired by nature and the female form, it’s the perfect bag to hold all of your lady things.
About the Artist Del Kathryn Barton is widely recognised as one of Australia's leading figurative painters of her generation. Barton graduated with a Bachelor of Fine Arts from the College of Fine Arts at the University of New South Wales in 1993, where she was subsequently employed as a lecturer in drawing. Barton’s decorative, highly detailed paintings are known for their vibrant, figurative imagery – combining traditional painting techniques with contemporary design and illustrative styles. Barton’s pictures present a world where everything is fecund and alive. No part of the picture plane is without adornment, and no figure or creature is less charmed than any other. Using a mixture of materials, including synthetic polymer paint, gouache, watercolour, pen and often glitter and sequins, she embroiders her world. Barton’s transfigurations throw us off balance, as does her giddy sense of colour and scale. Her work is unashamedly girly and her palette kaleidoscopic. Obsessive patterning and fragile heroines revive memories of childhood.
