Wendy Sharpe is one of Australia’s best-loved artists ‑ a natural creator with an
exotic palette and an instinct for voluptuous form.
After winning the Sulman Prize in her mid 20s, Sharpe came to national attention
in 1996 when her boisterous self-portrait won the Archibald Prize. A major commission
by the City of Sydney followed, to paint a series of murals for the Cook and
Phillip Park Aquatic Centre. In 1999, she was posted to East Timor as an official
Australian war artist. A retrospective exhibition was held at Sydney’s S. H. Ervin
Gallery in 2011.
These days, Sharpe works in Australia and overseas. This engaging film takes the
viewer into Sharpe’s Sydney studio to witness the daily, private dialogue between
the artist, her models and her partner (and fellow painter) Bernard Ollis. It’s a
privileged insight into the life of an endlessly-evolving creative spirit.
A second short film, Painting Venus Vamp, follows Sharpe as she paints her 2013
entry for the Archibald Prize. The theme of Burlesque has been a focus of her work
in recent years..
