Congratulations | Vipoo Srivilasa

Vipoo Srivilasa has been awarded the new Visual Arts and Crafts Strategy (VACS) Major Commissioning Projects program (AUD $100,000) from the Australia Council for the Arts.

This funding will help Srivilasa realise a major commission from the Australian Design Centre, re/JOY

re/JOY is a collaborative, community-driven project designed to engage with overseas-born Australians.

The project examines the emotional connection we have with objects and their role in our lives through migration stories and experiences – it draws out the complex feelings associated with overseas relocation, and the difficult process to gain Australian permanent residency.

Srivilasa notes: 'Here is a Photo of me among the Happy Australian Sculptures at the National Portrait Gallery, Canberra. I am now a very very happy Australian '

Congratulations | Jennifer Riddle

Congratulations | Jennifer Riddle

Congratulations to Jennifer Riddle for being selected as a finalist in the 2023 Glover Prize for her work "Reflections and Reverence" (acrylic on canvas, 183 x 183 cm).

Jennifer was announced the WINNER of the 2023 People's Choice Award and the Children's Choice Award.

'Our wilderness has long been the muse for artists throughout history. But today, in this increasingly rare, ancient landscape, I cannot help but feel a stir of emotions that go beyond the awe and sublime. Here, on Bathurst Harbour in Tasmania's Southwest, you can see the endurance of time in the glacial-formed quartzite landscape and the age-old trees that cling to the Celery Top Islands, as they have done centuries before. Yet, alarmingly, this primordial, enduring landscape is now an endangered rarity in the era of our Anthropocene world. With sentiments concerning humanity's fractured connection to the natural world, I reflect on this land's ancestral heritage of the Needwonnee Peoples, whose deep reciprocal relationship with the land and sea can be seen and felt today. Establishing or reuniting our reciprocal relationship and innate connection to nature is imperative to our earth's healing. Drawing upon my emotional connection and observations surrounding the effects of nature on our physical and emotional well-being, I aim to create an intangible space within this work, a sublimity that generates a raw and primal reunion with nature - a place for reflection, reverence, empathy and hope.’
