Finalist in STILL: National Still Life Award 2023

Out of 1,143 entries, I was just one of 63 finalists chosen in this year’s Still: National Still Life Award 2023.

The biennial acquisitive award, now in its fourth iteration, is open to all artists across Australia. STILL 2023 invited fresh and contemporary explorations of still life themes to highlight the diversity and vitality of still life in Australian contemporary art, broadening the interpretation of this enduring genre.

The Finalists for the award were selected by a panel including:

  • Sandra Conte, Guest Project Curator STILL

  • Ash Frost, Curator, Museum and Gallery, City of Coffs Harbour

  • Rachel Piercy, Director Manning Regional Art Gallery

  • Lisa Paulsen, Art Collector

The exhibition will open later in the year; the winner will be selected and announced by Guest Judge Max Delany, Artistic Director & CEO, Australian Centre for Contemporary Art. The People’s Choice Award, voted by visitors to the exhibition, will be announced towards the end of the exhibition.

STILL 2023 will be the first award exhibition to be presented at the new Yarrila Arts and Museum (YAM) and will be curated by Guest Curator, Sandra Conte.
