Annette Bezor

b. 1950 — 2020

Graduating from the South Australian School of Art, Adelaide in 1977, artist Annette Bezor established herself firmly as one of Australia’s foremost female contemporary artists. Drawing on imagery from popular culture, real life and classical art, Bezor’s visually rich and dynamic paintings explore the connections and contradictions between the beauty and power of women and society’s attitudes towards the female figure.

With over 30 solo exhibition spanning three decades, Bezor exhibited nationwide as well as internationally in Paris, New York, Hong Kong and Madrid. She was a finalist in multiple art prizes including the Archibald, Sulman, Doug Moran and the Portia Geach and her work is in the collection of several leading Australian institutions such as the Art Gallery of New South Wales, National Gallery of Victoria, Art Gallery of South Australia and Australian Centre for Contemporary Art, as well as in the private collections of John Sands and Victor and Lottie Smorgan.
