“As a portrait artist, I felt it was important to capture the wide-ranging emotions surrounding marriage equality by depicting two figures embracing. I made the figures androgynous and largely unpainted, allowing the viewer to cast their own interpretation. The painting started with an abstract, multicoloured background that I created while thinking about the road it took to get here – the blood, sweat and tears of those campaigning for decades, the heartache of having LGBTQIA+ rights put to a public opinion survey, the homophobia and in turn the tremendous support for equality. I used another layer of lavender paint to create a multitude of shapes and sizes to reflect the diversity of our community. Families, lovers, friends… I hope that everyone who views it will see themselves reflected in some way, regardless of their age, skin tone, gender or identity.” Kim Leutwyler

This work is part of a collection commemorating marriage equality becoming a reality in Australia. Eight artists were commissioned by The Store by Fairfax to create new works that celebrate this landmark event. View the full collection here

Sydney-based Kim Leutwyler works in a variety of media, including painting, installation, ceramics, print and drawing. She holds concurrent bachelor degrees in studio and art history from Arizona State University, also graduating from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago with a painting and drawing degree.
Leutwyler’s current work takes its form in paintings dealing with images 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 US.
Her recent accolades include being selected as a finalist in the Archibald, Sulman and Bluethumb art prizes, as well as the Portia Geach Memorial Award. She also won the Midsumma Visual Arts Guide Cover Competition, and her painting was the hero image for the 2016 LGBTQ Festival in Melbourne.
