I am honoured that my piece Self Portrait; Artist's Brain has been selected as a finalist in The 64th Blake Prize.
One of Australia’s longest standing and most historically significant art prizes.The 64th Blake Prize celebrates the diversity and aesthetic practices related to belief and non-belief within communities across Australia and internationally.
The Blake Prize takes its name from William Blake, as an artist of undoubted genius, seemed to belong to no school and succeeded in integrating religious and artistic content in his work. The Prize aims to encourage contemporary artists of disparate styles, religious and spiritual allegiances to create significant works of art which engage in relevant conversations and negotiations.
The 64th Blake Prize has three prize categories that challenge artists to investigate ideas, issues and engage audiences in conversations surrounding spiritual thought and religion in contemporary art. All the Blake Prize’s are strictly non-sectarian. The entries are not restricted to works related to any faith or any artistic style, but any work entered must have a recognisable religious or spiritual integrity.
Open seven days a week 10am-5pm
Closed public holidays.
