Life Lines – June Wilson

Portraits of women with diverse cultural heritage

About

June Wilson’s interest in the challenges facing multicultural families, particularly female members, emerged shortly after arriving in Tasmania, Australia as an impressionable 13-year-old. Relocating from another country, she was faced with overt and covert discrimination, despite herself being Caucasian and having a strong Tasmanian family heritage. Pastel, which has a 300-year-old history in portrait art, is the chosen medium for these works where Wilson endeavours to sensitively portray women of different cultures and characteristics.
