Lives and works in Sydney

Artist's CV

Represented by nanda\hobbs

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. Leutwyler 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.

Leutwyler's current body of work features paintings exploring notions 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 and Sulman Prizes, the Churchie national emerging art prize as well as the Portia Geach Memorial Award.
