Del Kathryn Barton wins Archibald
Her winning entry - a self-portrait also featuring her two children, Kell and Arella - is entitled You Are What Is Most Beautiful About Me.
"This painting celebrates the love I have for my two children and how my relationship with them has radically informed and indeed transformed my understanding of who I am," the artist said in a statement, remarking the title of the work refers to that "utterly profound in-loveness that all mothers have for their children."
She continued: "Both my children have taken my world by storm and very little compares to the devotion I feel for them both. The intensity of this emotion is not something that I could have prepared myself for. The alchemy of life offered forth from my inhabitable womans body is perhaps the greatest gift of my life."
The winner of the Archibald receives $50,000.
