Art disruptors

Linda Jackson and Jenny Kee from the early 1970’s were creative disruptors to ‘art as usual’ in Australia. Like their Modernist sisters they went overseas bringing back the new wave of art practice and energy in their own unique Australian way. They shared creative visions and hold a deep spiritual connection that spans decades. Step into Paradise is a beautiful sensitive documentary currently airing on iview produced by the Australian Broadcasting Corporation – a Black Fella production – showcasing their art practice and personal lives.

 “Australian women artists in the early 20th Century were pivotal in the shaping of Modernism as we know it today.” Leonard 2021. Often looked over in the cannon of Australian art history.  We can add Linda Jackson and Jenny Kee bringing a new energy and vibrancy to Australian art. I take my hat off to two pivotal art disruptors.
