Child and Mother
Patricia Stewart and Del Kathryn Barton met by chance and found an instant and immediate connection. In Child and Mother the two share a space as creatives, as women with lived experience of mental illness, as mothers and daughters.
From Patricia’s extensive personal collection and works from the Cunningham Dax Collection, Barton has curated an exhibition celebrating Patricia’s unique aesthetic grown from her mental health journey.Including new works by Del Kathryn Barton made in response to Patricia Stewart’s extraordinary oeuvre spanning over 25 years, Child and Mother is a rich visual exploration of relationships and connection.
