Section 1 – Easel Painting Award
1st Place $1000
Winning Artist: Leo Alexander Scott
Title of Work: Self Portrait Among Objects
The complex patterns and accumulation of objects around the central self portrait are well realised. Gives the whole work a vibrancy and great energy. Enjoyed the interaction and collusions between the various face elements, not unlike a collage.
Highly Commended $350
Artist: Carmen Beezley-Drake
Title of Work: Capricorn Landscape
Enjoyed especially the rhythmic use of the brushed paint handling. Enjoyed especially the sense of the true essence of that particular landscape. The immediacy and notational aspect of the work was most appealing.
Artist: Margaret Burgess
Title of Work: Finding Balance
Wonderfully poetic work – the naïve style perfectly evokes the subject and use of the intense blue that pervades the whole image is very effective.
