Annette Bezor

Graduating from the South Australia School of Art, Adelaide in 1977, artist Annette Bezor has established herself firmly as one of Australia’s foremost female contemporary artists. With over 30 solo exhibitions spanning three decades, Annette has exhibited nationwide as well as internationally in Europe, Hong Kong and the USA. Her work has been presented at a number of international art fairs, including Korea International Art Fair (KIAF, 2011), ARCO (2004, 1996) and Art Taipei (2004).

Annette’s practice has focussed on an exploration of the ‘female condition’, her work has specifically addressed female sexuality, the politics of gender, the use of symbols and the symbolic power of the image. Annette’s oeuvre has also been as much about the artworks themselves, as a commentary on the condition of contemporary painting.
