Congratulations to Leoni Duff (Considering my Landscape) & Dean Hohn (After the Dream) who were both chosen as finalists in the 2016 $40,000 Glover Prize !
Leoni Duff's painting "Considering My Landscape" Oil on canvas, 152 x 122cm was Highly Commended by the judges.
This work explores the relationship between gender politics, the domestic scene, my life as a
woman and a painter, and the allegorical nature of light on my landscape, discussing the ancient
themes of worlds within worlds; the essential transience of the solid material world and the
profound permanence of immaterial realities.
It is through touching the edges of the human condition that I believe art endures and speaks.
The setting for the work is a kitchen in my studio space, in the corner of one of the oldest historical
buildings in Launceston. An open door leads past a painting of a landscape to the light-filled
kitchen. This studio is the place where I work and think. But this kitchen is also a reference to the
landscape I have inhabited for most of my youth and now into my older age.
With influences as diverse as Vermeer, Hammershoi and Hopper with their still, reflective, timeless
interiors and Chardin with his exaltation of the ordinary, tensions are generated from both mundane
and transcendent descriptions and from traditional and contemporary dialogues.
For some, the landscape I have inhabited can seem narrow and boundaried - an ugly vision of
confinement and containment, a room full of yearning discontent, a door into the internal landscape
of lust and the chaos of desire.
Yet this room is transformed by the sheer beauty of the light. The light can alter perception...
the landscape, this internal and external world within the larger world is lifted by light into a
manifesto of liberty, beauty and power.
Vast personal and cultural consequences are forged here.
As I consider my landscape... LD
Dean Hohn's photo "After the Dream" Sublimation print on aluminium 56 x 158cm was the only photograph selected as a finalist.
Having a creative mind, fueled by nature’s wondrous gifts, can make for interesting adventures and creations.
The interaction between light and land, sky and water can each be fascinating and beautiful in its own right. When you combine all of theses elements together into one creation you can, on the odd occasion, encounter something that borders on magical!
As an artist, one of those special occasions occurred while creating “After The Dream” DH

Congratulations to Ryllton Viney who is a finalist in the in the $20,000 Bay of Fires Art Prize.
David Hamilton’s installation at Spring Bay Mill was part of the ‘Reorder’ exhibition for the Tasmanian International Arts Festival. “Walking through the site I thought about the huge number of trees that had been felled to produce the vast amount of chips that surrounded me. The heaps contained the torn and broken fragments of former forest giants. In a way they were like massive funeral pyres. Reconstructing the fragments into a simulacrum of trees and the environment of which they had once been part, is a desire to reverse the order and to will time to go backwards. This is both a memento mori to the seemingly inevitable death of all things natural in the wake of human expansion, and metaphorical seeds for the growth of a sustainable future.” DH.

Congratulations David Hamilton who has just won the Artentwine West Tamar Acquisitive Art Award ($10,000).
Judges were Sue Backhouse, Senior Curator of Art, Tasmanian Museum & Art Gallery; Robert Lindsay, McClelland Gallery & Sculpture Park and Dr Ceridwen Owen, Acting Head, School of Architecture.
Judge’s comments about David’s work:
David Hamilton's work displays a sophisticated technique, flawless in its execution.
The work displays a mastery of the material, taking this hard metal and making it conform to the artist's concept and intent - a play between hardness and malleability.
There is also a beauty in its elegant geometry.
'Knot' effectively works at a distance as a minimalist form, and on closer inspection, the visually intriguing surface texture and expressive colour entices an extended and intimate view of the work.
