23 Oct Paddington Art Prize 2022!
I’m SO excited to be selected as a finalist in this year’s Paddington Art Prize!!!
I’m really honoured that they have chosen my painting of a power pole to show in a landscape award.
I do like looking up. I spend a lot of time doing that, for many reasons (of which there are more and more these days of very challenging times!), but I digress…
Wires with blue sky beyond… look at them, to me they are visually a bit like a man-made tree, lacework maybe, or a tangled web.
I found out that no two are the same, like snowflakes or fingerprints.
They look like technology from a time long gone, yet they actually work to keep us connected most of the time.
They are dangerous when they fall over, so ultimately they will disappear to be replaced by underground wires (a much safer option),
but for now – I’m interested in those old weathered timber poles, and the newer green treated ones as well, and the way the light catches the wires creating some interesting patterns in the sky, a little like small branches of a tree!
I don’t expect to win at all – but I’m so excited just to be hung alongside over 50 talented artists!
