Kim Leutywyler

Kim Leutwyler is an American artist based in Australia. She makes large scale figure paintings of LGBTQ-identified women. Kim says about her latest body of work: “Some of my newest figurative work is set amongst fluid, bright abstractions. They are comprised of oil, acrylic and graphite on canvas, as well as gouache and watercolor on paper. I explore the fluidity and complexity of gender and sexuality through these layered abstractions.”
