Last night, Bianca and I attended a VIP viewing of this years Finalists for the 2012 Cliftons’s Art Prize, I has the privilege of being one of the finalists. I was completely overwhelmed with joy and happiness to be part of this truly amazing art prize.
Upon entering, I couldn’t help but feel I was walking to a fine art museum, my work along the likes of Jane Bennett and Vivian Falk one, who is a past winner of the Cliftons’s Art Prize and one who has been a finalist in the Archibald Prize.
My piece was entitled Dominion. The glowing green orb is offering a chance to revisit some of Sydney’s history. Through use of long exposure photography I find it presents a sense of time standing still and time travel encompassing the scene. The markings of star trail and cloud movements cannot be seen as a whole through the human eye, it is only once the image has been captured does it come together as a keyhole into Sydney’s past.
