COMP CLOSED: ‘Girl in a Pink Dress’ by Kylie Needham

Two ambitious artists. One act that changes everything. This week’s giveaway is the newly-released Girl in a Pink Dress by Kylie Needham – set in rural Australia as well as the buzzing Sydney art world. Here’s the blurb:

Can one relationship survive two ambitious artists?

Frances is an artist in her forties living a quiet life in a remote mountain town in NSW, far away from the glittering lights and famous personalities of the Sydney art world she once knew. When an invitation arrives from a former lover to attend his exhibition at a state gallery, Frances is plunged back into the past, where a single irrevocable act changed the course of her story.

Told across two time periods, Frances’s story wrestles with themes of power and privilege, womanhood and motherhood, artistic doubt, the male gaze upon the female body, and the commodification of art. It looks at the fraught relationships between artists and their muses, the sacrifices of a life devoted to art, and asks if it is ever really possible for two ambitious artists to thrive in one relationship.
