The 2019 Perry Prize People's Choice Award has been announced
CONGRATULATIONS TO Kim Anderson, winner of the 2019 People's Choice Award
In March Adelaide Perry Gallery exhibited the works of 43 finalists in the fourteenth Perry Prize and invited visitors to cast their vote for the People’s Choice award, valued at $2,000.
Ballarat artist Kim Anderson’s striking charcoal, pastel, and ink on paper work Mourning Dance I, pictured below, was voted the favourite. Congratulations to Kim, our 2019 People's Choice winner.
Of her drawing practice, Anderson said, "I explore the physical manifestations of a psyche in turmoil and the ever-shifting relationship between our inner and outer worlds… ‘Mourning Dance I’ shows a moment of intense grief, but also in some ways a kind of release. I channel my feelings of grief and loss into my art-making as a way of coming to terms with them, and accepting that loss is an inevitable part of life".
Now in its 14th year, the Perry Prize is one of the most well-regarded and valuable of its kind in Australia. PLC Sydney and the Adelaide Perry Gallery gratefully acknowledges all of the entrants for their participation and John Wolseley for his time and expertise.
