A portrait of my dear friend and fellow artist, Tamara Armstrong. I create paintings of LGBTQ+ identified and allied women, as well as gender nonconforming people. My work toys with the concepts of glorification, objectification and modification, touching on the mutability of identity, gender and beauty. Although I enjoy working in a variety of mediums, I have come to focus on painting because of its primarily masculine history in the western art canon. I first began sketching Tamara in a small forest in Centennial Park, Sydney. The portrait continued in my studio, taking 3 weeks to complete.

Tamara Armstrong is an Australian visual artist, living and working from her purpose-built art studio at Tamborine Mountain in the Gold Coast hinterland of Queensland. We met 2 yrs ago at S.H. Ervin Gallery as finalists in the Portia Geach Memorial Award, a portrait prize for female identifying artists. I was instantly drawn to this 6’2 biracial amazon of a woman and her powerful artwork.

Tamara paints portraits of empowered women who live life in brilliant colour and bold substance. She says “diversifying the representation of what beauty looks like is something that is very important to me, hence my choice of subjects aims to subtly disrupt and challenge the status quo.”
