Sorry, no Works were found in the Kate Bergin collection.
Kate’s works revel in the unusual, the precarious and the unexpected. Far from “still”, her paintings quiver with movement, laughter and life. It is impossible to ignore their vitality.
Animals poised to leap from the canvas; birds to take flight; Bergin’s work, intoxicating and absurd, captures the mundane and exotic in virtuosic detail.
Bergin’s work is held in the Art Gallery of NSW (gifted by Margaret Olley AC), Bendigo Art Gallery, Artbank and significant private collections.
She holds a Bachelor of Fine Arts from Victoria College of the Arts and has been a recipient of a number of major awards, including the Albany Art Prize, the Waterhouse Natural History Art Prize, the Arthur Guy Memorial Art Prize and was a finalist in the 2011 & 2013 Sulman Prize.
With a career spanning 25 years, Kate Bergin is regarded as a highly collectible artist.
“I hope this painting with its use of the exotic and the everyday elements and bound within the ongoing concerns of Natura Morte help us to see the world as a wonderful and magical place alive with possibility………
Or maybe we should think of the world as being alive with impossibility.“
Alice laughed “There’s no use trying,” she said, “one can’t believe impossible things”.
“I daresay you haven’t had much practice,” said the Queen.
“When I was your age, I always did it for half an hour a day.
Why sometimes I’ve believed as many as Six Impossible things before breakfast”.
