Field Colour Painting Selected as Finalist in 2013 Fleurieu Art Prize

I'm thrilled to say my new painting titled Field Colour has been selected, from over 1200 works from around the world, as a finalist in the 2013 Fleurieu Art Prize. The winner of the $60,000 prize will be announced at a Cocktail Party on Saturday 26 October 2013 at the wineries of the Fleurieu Peninsula, South Australia.

Field Colour Painting

The painting contains a grid of nine 200mm square canvas stretchers. It plays in a tension between the joy of two-dimensional paint on canvas, and the compulsion to imbue those marks with a representational depth. It positions the visual shimmer of a Rothko Color Field, in the dimensional world of a landscape... ...wish me luck.
