Kathleen Sauerbier

A modern pursuit

Kathleen Sauerbier, Gloria Strzelecki

Kathleen Sauerbier
Modern in her attitude to life and art, Kathleen Sauerbier (1903-1991) painted outstanding landscapes, and also portraits, streetscapes and still lifes. In her native South Australia she became one of the first artists to respond to the beautiful Fleurieu Peninsula with a truly modernist approach, while she lived and painted also in Melbourne, London and France.

Sauerbier is notable not only for her limited use of colour, fluid line-work and simplified forms but also her artistic influence on fellow Australian painter Horace Trenerry. Kathleen Sauerbier: A modern pursuit explores relationships between Sauerbier's art and life, and the simple aesthetic she pursued in both.

Gloria Strzelecki is a freelance curator and writer, and has been Gallery Manager at the Adelaide Central School of Art since 2009. She has worked at the Art Gallery of South Australia as a curatorial research assistant, and from 2007 until 2009 was co-director of a contemporary art space, 'A Room of Her Own', which she established in Adelaide. She is the author of Jacqueline Hick: Born wise, also part of the Carrick Hill series.
