Kathryn Gallagher 

Sydney based Pop artist Kathryn Gallagher is best known for her boldly-coloured paintings based on mash ups of comic strips, advertisements and iconic Hollywood Celebrity. Like much Pop Art, it provokes debate over ideas of originality, consumerism and the fine line between fine art and entertainment. Yet at the sime time appeals to the child within. Kathryn approaches the creation of her art and use of subject matter similar to how a new born child would view the world; everything is fascinating and nothing mundane. She aims to capture a childlike innocence and wonderment in all her works, because she feels that children best understand the essence of creativity. They don’t try to dissect and over analyse what they see, but rather get lost in the magic and joy in what this world has to offer
