My artwork, Love on the Moon, is a finalist in the National Works on Paper 2022.
The work is one of just 78 artists from all corners of Australia who have been shortlisted from almost 900 entries for the 2022 National Works on Paper (NWOP). The prize, one of the most prestigious acquisitive prizes and exhibitions of its type in Australia, supports and promotes contemporary Australian artists working on or with paper with up to $60,000 acquisitions and awards (including the $20,000 major acquisitive award).
My artwork Love on the Moon is made from papier–mâché and collage and explores my 23 year relationship with my husband.
This diverse exhibition provides a survey of what’s happening in contemporary art across Australia today. Traditional approaches to working with paper are explored alongside works that incorporate new technologies, pushing the boundaries of the medium and expanding our appreciation of what working with and on paper can be.
The judges for this year’s award are Clothilde Bullen, Head of Indigenous Programs and Initiatives and Curator of Indigenous Art, AGWA, Max Delany, Artistic Director and CEO, ACCA, Jenna Lee, artist, NWOP finalist 2020 and Danny Lacy, Director Mornington Peninsula Regional Gallery.
The 2022 exhibition will be held at MPRG from 13 August to 27 November 2022 and the winner of the 2022 National Works on Paper prize will be announced at the exhibition launch on Saturday 13 August 2022.
