Wynne Prize and art from APY Lands

Pondering this week on the annual Wynne Prize. I try to submit a work every year if I can. Feeling pretty good about this year’s effort, Coastal Scape Elements, acrylic on board, 76 x 108cm:

There are so many stunning works that get exhibited every year. My chances are hilariously tiny, but that doesn’t matter. It’s a kind of professional obligation, in a way, to enter these important shows – to somehow feel like you’re part of the whole endeavour, even if your works don’t get to be hung in those hallowed halls. This is the electric and gorgeous winner from last year, Seven sisters  from the Ken Family, acrylic on 2 canvases, overall 244 x 305cm:

The various styles of work from the APY lands (top left corner of SA) are mind-blowing. Check out this little clip from ABC Arts…gorgeous stuff.
