Congratulations to Nadine Christensen who has won the R & M McGivern Prize!
The judges commented that the work ‘was a technically accomplished painting that renders a collision of imagery, scale and painterly planes in a masterfully cohesive fashion. Christensen’s work reminds us that while life is fleeting and fragile there is hope in the midst of despair. The artwork showcases the artist’s affinity with spatial deconstruction and the existential plight of humanity.’
“The painting is a consideration of time and fragility. Human nature and the ecosystem. Ugliness and utility”, said artist Nadine Christensen.
Awarded $25,000 in prize money, Nadine Christensen’s work will also become part of the Maroondah City Council Art Collection, a significant public collection of Australian art.
