Director's Statement: Kerrie Lester was born in 1953 in Sydney and has lived and worked from her Mosman studio since 1989. Lester is renowned for her distinctive stitched canvas paintings, offering a unique perspective of her immediate environment and surroundings – artworks poised between painting, drawing, sculpture and weaving.
With an art career that has been meteoric, Lester has held over 21 solo exhibitions spanning over a thirty year period, her first held immediately after graduating from art school. In conjunction, Lester has been represented in many important group exhibitions including the Biennale of Sydney in 1979 and Australian Perspecta in 1981 and 1985.
Lester has been a finalist for fourteen consecutive years for the prestigious Archibald Competition and winning the Packer’s Prize in 1979, as well as receiving a number of major art awards and commissions. Her work is represented in many public, corporate and private art collections across Australia.
