Since graduating from the Victorian College of the Arts in 1992, Kate Bergin has explored the still life genre and the idea of hunting and collecting. Highly sought after, with six consecutive sell-out shows, Kate Bergin has established her reputation creating paintings where the exotic meets the everyday in a world that teeters on the edge of the possible.
Kate has had many solo exhibitions including sell out shows at Sydney Contemporary in 2015 and the Melbourne Art Fair in 2012. She has been selected as a Sulman Prize finalist at the Art Gallery of NSW in 1995, 2011 and 2013 and the winner of the 2010 Albany Art Prize. She has also won People’s Choice Awards at both the Arthur Guy Memorial Painting Prize in 2011 and the Sunshine Coast Art Prize in 2009. In 1994 Margaret Olley gifted one of Kate’s works to the Art Gallery of NSW.
