I am delighted to share the following news with you:
Yes, I am a finalist in the ‘For the love of art competition”! So for those in the Gauteng region – you are welcome to attend the prize giving ceremony tomorrow night at 6pm. Unfortunately I wont be able to attend, but will be there in spirit.
This is the work I entered:
Now a couple of friends of mine are very anti-art competitions. I’ve had some interesting conversations about this on facebook. This year I decided to go for every opportunity that presents itself – who knows what will come from it.
I read this lovely speech by Marlene Dumas see here.
Although her situation is a bit different because she was presented with this prize and did not enter a competition; I still love her words and insight.
How do you feel about competitions?
