Kate Bergin

is an Australian painter. She studied Painting at Victorian College of the Arts, University of Melbourne. From her initial paintings of hundreds of red delicious apples to collections of moths and butterflies which she gathered during her five year stay in Cairns, and her discovery of Ellis Rowan and her adventures and beautiful artworks, she has moved on to collections of birds and animals mainly taken from the storerooms of Museum Victoria and also from live animals in zoos around the country. She is also gathering my own collection of bird and animal specimens particularly my much painted foxes. These creatures are her “intelligent collaborators, symbols of thought and imagination” as Kynaston McShine says of Joseph Cornell’s constant use of birds in his artwork.
