Born 1942, Melbourne
Dorothy Berry approaches her work with great passion and this is evident in the energy and vibrancy of her images. Her work demonstrates a keen interest in animals, and often employs them in a symbolic sense. Berry has developed an intricate set of signs in order to construct personal narratives and her work often recounts an experience, event, belief or opinion relating to her life. Her densely packed compositions frequently consist of an accumulation of these incidents or symbols instilled with personal significance.
