Having spent the beginning of the year applying for everything possible some of those have panned out and makes me hopeful for the future.
I am currently showing work in the Adelaide Museum and at Guildhouse and I found out yesterday that I am a finalist in the Pro Hart Broken Hill Art Prize.
As a finalist in the Waterhouse Art Prize I was pleasantly surprised to find this at the opening. The piece is called Life Savings and is a commentary on the importance of Seed Banks in preserving biodiversity.
My exhibition at Guildhouse includes some of the work from my Honours exhibition and is part of the SALA Festival.
The finalist piece for the Pro Hart Art Prize is my beloved Flyscreen which will just keep becoming beautifully worn as time goes on.
I haven’t forgone my painting practice as I have just completed a fantastic masterclass with the wonderful and generous hyperrealist painter Robin Eley.
Just a little unfinished exercise I painted during the class. I’ll post the finished piece later.
I have also moved to a wonderfully appointed new ARI studio and exhibition space on the Parade in Norwood called Collective Haunt with 18 other talented and supportive artists so good things are happening.
