In Australia our freedoms are limited and our love isn't always recognized. There are people in the world facing more significant problems with much bigger hurdles to overcome, and keeping that perspective makes our obstacle seem that much more achievable and within our grasp.
This is a portrait of my dear friends, a beautiful Sydney-based couple.
Born in the United States, Leutwyler migrated to Australia in 2012. Based in Sydney, she works in a variety of media. Her current body of work features paintings dealing with images of beauty, gender and queer identity.
Leutwyler's recent accolades include being selected as a finalist in the Archibald, Sulman and Bluethumb Art Prizes, as well as the 2016 Portia Geach Memorial Award.
