Polarities - Presented the Award for Excellence in 2D Painting; the Kalgoorlie Boulder Art Prize 2015
My artwork, 'Polarities, Darkness and Light', was presented the Award for Excellence – 2D in Painting, at the Kalgoorlie Boulder Art Prize, Sept 5, 2015.
The Judges for this year’s event were Dr Ric Spence artist, writer and curator of the Fremantle Arts Centre, Tracey Luke artist, manager and curator of the Tjukurba Art Centre in Wiluna, and Dr Janice Lally who is currently curator of Public Programs at the University of Western Australia Museums.
The following judge’s comments were given; “Well handled and confident technique & fluid use of paint with a natural intensity. Brad strokes made good use of the scale and showed a strong sense of purpose…"Mark Lewis, MLC, commented, "Your exhibit Polarities, Darkness & Light certainly took not only the judges eye but that of the many people who attended the evening".
It was a wonderful event to be involved in, I was really touched by the communities support and reception to my work. I am grateful to the Kalgoorlie Boulder Art Prize, for the opportunity to exhibit, and for the encouragement as an emerging artist.
