Judges: Kasey Seally (artist) and Pip Kerr (member of public)
Confusion – Peter Fennell
acrylic on sugar sack
very subtle but clever in its concept – the virus – but has all different layers of how you can interpret it. A nice colour harmony and texture to it. Also, a microcosmic effect.
A COVID Fantasy – Marion Mikkelsen, Bronwyn Hunter, Lyn Olesen and Patsy Burgess
toilet paper and rolls, wire, ribbon on mannequin
A great concept well put together with a cheeky and fragile medium. Very good design and craft. Can be recycled.
A COVID FANTASY narrative
LADY SCOTT wanders through her newly built garden. She is with her faithful companion QUILTON. He enjoys all the smells around the garden while Lady Scott admires her beautiful SORBENT blooms.
She begins to think of the days in the future when she can share this relaxing space with her friends. In fact she is already planning a perfumed garden. A sweet perfume would be lovely on a summer evening breeze.
Staying in Touch – Marion Mikkelsen
acrylic on canvas
Isolated but staying together. A nice sense of light as well. Again a nice concept that reflects our current reality of our reliance on technology.
