Belinda Barnes

By

Belinda Barnes is a Canberra-based Australian painter originally from South Africa. The moody colouring of her work evokes landscapes and natural shapes seen as memories, while her use of perspective gives a simultaneous feel of the aerial and the microscopic. There is a distinctly Australian quality about her work – the earthy orange and red palette, combined with striking blues, summon extremes of Australian bush and water. Belinda has had several exhibitions and sold numerous works, and took the time to talk to us about her artwork, her process and her story.

“Tigress is a message we need to hear; Tigress is a message we want to hear.”

So declares Ellie Bricknell, a guest speaker at Tigress Magazine’s crowdfunding campaign party last Friday night. She is an ardent feminist, bulldozing her way as an actor, and 15 years old – an inspiring representation of Tigress’s readership and contributors.
