The Art of

Audrey Rhoda

 

From the onset of her career, Audrey Rhoda has defined her paintings as personal, metaphorical narratives. Her subject matter is completely autobiographical and, with her unique way of painting with the layering of beeswax and oils, a metaphor of her life - the complex accumulation of experiences producing unusual, varied results.

Born into Apartheid's Johannesburg in 1949, Audrey Rhoda immigrated to Australia in 1983. In Sydney, she achieved her Fine Arts Degree and Masters of Art.   Rhoda has exhibited extensively in Sydney as well as in Melbourne, New York, Paris and Los Angeles,
