About The Artwork

On Dec 7, 2017 Marriage Equality became law in Australia. As a portrait artist I felt it was important to capture the wide-ranging emotions surrounding marriage equality by depicting two figures embracing. I made the figures androgynous and largely unpainted. The painting started with an abstract multi-coloured background that I created while thinking about the road it took to get here. The blood, sweat and tears of those campaigning for decades, the heartache of having LGBTQIA+ rights put to a public opinion survey, the homophobia and in turn the tremendous support for Equality. I used another layer of lavender paint to revisit a pattern I created to reflect the diversity of our community. Families, lovers, friends...I hope that everyone who views it will see themselves reflected in some way regardless of their age, skin tone, gender or identity. The original of Yes (About Time) is available with 25% of the profit going to ACON.

Born in America, Sydney-based Kim Leutwyler migrated to Australia in 2012. She works in a variety of media including painting, installation, ceramics, printmedia and drawing. Kim holds concurrent bachelor degrees in Studio and Art History from Arizona State University, and additionally graduated from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago with a Painting and Drawing degree. Kim’s current work takes its form in paintings dealing with images of beauty, gender and Queer-identity. She has come to focus on painting as a medium because of its primarily masculine history in the western art canon. Her artwork has been exhibited in multiple galleries and museums throughout Australia and the United States. Some of Leutwyler's recent accolades include being selected as a finalist in the Archibald, Sulman and Doug Moran Art Prizes, as well as the Portia Geach Memorial Award.
