Adelaide Hills Landscape Arts Prize

Sail right through me, 2019.

I am very happy that two photographs were Finalists in the Adelaide Hills Landscape Arts Prize 2019.

South Australian artists were invited to interpret their experience of the Adelaide Hills in ways that highlights and captures their awareness of its dynamic and diverse environment and landscape – natural, rural or urban – and its ever-changing seasons.

‘Sail right through me’ was taken in winter 2019 back where I grew up on the outskirts of Lobethal. In brief I was reminiscing on the still of night that was interrupted by cars. 40cmx60cm C-print on silver halide paper.

DeLorean, 2019, 44cm x 44cm. C-type print on silver halide paper. I went back. Back to 1982 when I could recognise the whistle of a HK Holden approaching in the still of night.

‘DeLorean’ was taken on the same stretch of road. I went back. Back to 1982 when I could recognise the whistle of a HK Holden approaching in the still of night. 40cmx40cm C-print on silver halide paper.

This Arts Prize was only launched in 2017 and is presented in alternate years to the biennial Heysen Prize for Landscape at the same venue. More details at the Hahndorf Academy website.
