I’m happy to say I’ve been invited again to be one of the judges for the Cliftons Art Prize. One of a panel of international judges I’ll helping to select regional winners and the overall prize winner. I’ve been involved for a few years now and have seen the award grow in stature and quality.
Each regional winner receives A$2,000 and a chance at the $10,000 overall winners prize.
This is last years winner from Sydney, called “Man 14” by Anh Do. (Oil on linen 180cm x 120cm)
“This is a painting of my friend Paul. Paul calls himself a modern day “rag and bone man”. In the UK, 19th-century rag-and-bone men walked around scavenging unwanted rags, bones, and other waste from the towns and cities where they lived. Today Paul roams around the neighbourhood collecting unwanted “junk” that people have thrown out onto the curbside. Sometimes Paul’s 3 legged dog Patsy comes with him.”
Entries close on July 31st so give it go…you never know!
