Antoinette Barbouttis is a theatre practitioner, writer, and fine artist. She was the winner of The Lester Prize (formally the Black Swan Prize) in 2018. Her fine art practice is economical – limited to willow charcoal and paper. Antoinette forms relationships prior to commencing her work, and develops them further with the sitter as the work progresses. Antoinette coins her work as “slow art” as is takes a good 3-4 months to complete an A0 sized work.
