Julie Dowling - Picture the Women
Julie Dowling is one of Australia's most collectable artists and yet she and her identical twin sister are the ultimate misfits.
Aboriginal but pale skinned, inseparable through a shared life of rejection and abuse, identically overweight, they are the product of generations of damaged and displaced women. As they grew up they had almost no place in modern society - twin white waifs to a single mother, rejected at birth by their father, entirely dependant on welfare.
But because of Julie's talent, and crucially because of the strength and support twins give each other, she is the first in the family to be revealing the long history of hopelessness and struggle, through her portraits.
