Melville Art Awards 2015

Very excited to have been awarded the Judges Choice  in the Melville Art Awards 2015 for the work The Little Flour Mill – New Norcia. The work has been purchased by the City of Melville for their collection. Below are the judges comments from which I deduce I am not as simple as I look…

Judges Comments:

This work is exquisite in its simplicity. A subtle and effective use of collage and mixed media, a careful and exacting technique coming together to give a sense of drama, isolation and melancholy in the finished work, which in turn talks of rural/wheatbelt Western Australia in an eloquent and empathetic way. The work shows that while an artwork may appear simple, this doesn’t have to equate to it being simplistic.
