This fine-art digital print has been reproduced using the giclee technique under the watchful eye of the artist. Limited to just 50 editions, each is hand-signed by the artist and accompanied by a certificate of authenticity signed by the Editor-in-Chief. 

On every level, the life, and certainly the death, of Catherine Ada Foster – formerly Kate Kelly – suggest miscarriages of justice that afflicted the Irish immigrant family best known for its stand at Glenrowan, masterminded by Kate’s brother, Ned.

Author and academic Merrill Findlay establishes that “Kate was her brother’s sister, a brilliant horse- and bush-woman. (After the demise of the Kelly Gang, Kate used her skills to ride in the Wild West shows that sprang up in the colonies.)

“Some say that, in fact, she was the fifth member of the gang. A campaigner for the abolition of the death sentence and vocal supporter of Ned during his trial, it is a mistake to view Kate solely as a victim, let alone self-serving or ambitious, focused on bragging rights or celebrity.”

Gria Shead's technically astute paintings explore core human concerns: love, longing, displacement and discovery. She looks to earlier periods and environments in her quest to establish accurate references for a contemporary realisation of the issues of social justice, harmony and beauty.

Australian historiography privileges its patriot sons and their conquests over the country and adversity. Celebrated in words and images, legends were created by men about men, and white men at that. But what of the marginalised peoples in our early history: the women, the political refugees from old world England and Ireland, the deposed Indigenous people, and the early Chinese immigrants? Shead reviews our colonial and postcolonial history, finding that the forgotten not only contributed but also were, in many instances, the catalyst or inspiration for the stories we hold dear.

Shead’s oeuvre traces a trajectory on which may be plotted places and points of departure that she has transmuted with a jewel-like palette and technical verve and assurance.

She is represented by Nanda\Hobbs Contemporary ( in Sydney.
