G.W. Bot

b. 1954

G.W. Bot is a contemporary Australian printmaker, sculptor, painter and graphic artist who has created her own signs and glyphs to capture her close, personal relationship with the Australian landscape. Her artist’s name derives from ‘le grand Wam Bot’ after the early French explorers term for the wombat which she has adopted as her totemic animal. She has held over 50 solo exhibitions. A touring survey, ‘The Long Paddock’ was organised by the Goulburn Regional Art Gallery from 2010 to 2013. Her work was included in the exhibition ‘Out of Australia’ at the British Museum, London in 2011; ‘Australia’ at the Royal Academy, London, 2013 and the ‘National Gallery Contemporary’ Canberra, 2014. Her work is held in many galleries nationally and internationally, among them the National Gallery of Australia; the British Museum, London; the Victoria and Albert Museum, London; the Bibliotheque Nationale, Paris; the Albertina, Vienna; the Museum of Modern Art, Osaka, Japan and the Fogg Museum of Fine Arts, Harvard University, Cambridge, MA, USA.
