A few months catch-up

On Monday 16th the Fleurieu Biennale Art Prize announced its short list and I was thrilled to find my name among the finalists! The prize celebrates its 20th anniversary this year; I was also a finalist in 2002, and it's a pleasure to be 'on the wall' again.

This year I have also been lucky enough to be selected as a finalist in the Muswellbrook Art Prize (works on paper) and the 40th Alice Art Prize, both major events on the Australian arts calendar.

Over the years I’ve been a finalist in the Prospect Portrait Prize four times and was fortunate in late 2017 to win it! A word of thanks must go to the Prospect Council for their sustained support of the arts, and to major sponsors Terry Howe Printing Services. For a local business to commit to the level of sponsorship and community support they do is a major effort, I’d encourage you to consider them for your next print job!

In print

From London The Lancet Neurology surprised me with a request for an interview and images from the show. The resulting two-page article ‘The Longest Sleep’ by Clare Caldwell and Matthew Kiernan was a lovely sensitive piece published in the December issue; a rare treat to be reviewed as an artist in one of the world’s foremost medical journals.

Room 10 made it into the Alice Prize. It generated a lot of emotional conversation following my artist talk. I was very pleased to hear it sold a few days later.

It was great to have the chance to be at the opening of the 40th Alice Art Prize, a wonderful show and well attended.
