About Elizabeth Barsham

My ancestors were among the earliest English settlers in Tasmania where wildlife and geology are exotic even by Australian standards. Living in my grandfather's house, I paint the history of Europeans in this remote landscape, creating romantic, enigmatic images of desperation and determination. Nineteenth century literature, Heavy Metal music, Goth fashion, environmental degradation and climate change inform my art, creating a uniquely Tasmanian Gothic mythology.
