For the 2014 Adelaide Biennial Del Kathryn Barton presents both painting and the moving image. Her 9-metre-long painting the heart land immerses the viewer in dynamic colour and exquisite detail. Barton’s feminine protagonist, who grows in arboreal form from a subterraneous heart, continues the artist’s enduring fascination with the female journey.
