Eminent Australian landscape painter Mary Tonkin has been interviewed for a new episode of the podcast Art W**k.

“No introduction needed for this week’s guest! The incredible artist Mary Tonkin who many of you would know from her huge painting on display at this year’s Sydney Contemporary.

We have been a big fan of Mary’s work for some time and plucked up the courage to ask her at Sydney Contemporary. She couldn’t have been more lovely and agreed to an interview. Recorded over zoom in between her en plein air painting practice.

Her paintings are as immersive and beautiful as the place she paints them in – her family property in rural Victoria.

Enjoy this episode and make notes, lots of great inspiration and tips.
Thanks Mary!”
