Biography

Born Sale, Victoria Australia 1956

Lives and works in Melbourne, Australia

 

Vivienne Shark Lewitt is a painter and cartoonist whose astute wit and subversive humour have underpinned her discursive and allegorical paintings which pointedly, and at times poignantly, reveal the peculiarity, complexity and absurdity of the human condition. 

Drawing upon both art historical and literary sources, the artist subtly interrogates past traditions, quoting different elements in ironic combinations which confront and confound the viewer with their ambiguous and enigmatic narratives.
