To stare into the surface of a Betty Chimney artwork is to witness an adoration of Country, direct from the artist’s heart. Delicately choreographed and altogether mesmeric, every moment captured in a Betty Chimney painting is an autobiographical ode to a life wedded to Country.
At this year’s Sydney Contemporary art fair Michael Reid Sydney + Berlin will exhibit a collection of new Betty Chimney paintings, supplying collectors with an opportunity to acquire a work by one of Australia’s most coveted contemporary painters.
Earlier this year Betty Chimney presented a solo exhibition at Michael Reid Sydney in which all paintings were acquired prior to commencement. This was followed by her selection as a 2023 Wynne Prize finalist at the Art Gallery of New South Wales. More recently, Chimney was a finalist in the Hadley’s Prize in Hobart. Betty Chimney will participate in Sydney Contemporary for the first time in 2023.
