  • 1. Cliftons Art Prize 2011
    Sydney Entries
  • 2.
  • 3. Artist: Karen Bloomfield
    Title: 'Little Big Bird'
    Medium: Charcoal & Acrylic on plywood
    Size: 120 x 86cm
    Art description Eagles symbolize the strength and action of man. The eagle is used as an emblem for the United States of America. In Christianity the eagle represents salvation. How very fragile it all is.
    Artist bio Karen Bloomfield has been capturing her visual world in drawings since the age of 3. Early loss and challenge has led to Karen becoming an artist interested in exploring the dichotomy of relationship, society, religion and expectation. By looking beyond the visually apparent, Karen intends for her images to evoke questions of intention, reality, good and evil, seen and unseen. Karen's influences have been early realist painter Caravaggio, as well as contemporary Odd Nerdrum, and surrealist painter Dali. Living and working on the beautiful NSW Central Coast, Karen's current interest in charcoal and acrylic mediums provide a depth and detail of imagery which draw the viewer into a world apart.

  • 5. Artist: Gabriella Hirst
    Title: Falling Teeth (M.A.M.L)
    Medium: Gouache on Silk
    Size: 1.9mX1.2mX0.9m
    Art description My current work, a series of layered paintings on transparent silk, respond to my research into the life of the 18th century feral child Marie-Angelique Memmie LeBlanc, an exploration into the theme of 'savage vs civilized' . In this series I am drawing upon the conflicts of a specific individual in history, as a greater exploration of human nature. My use of silk as a medium stems from my discovery of Leblanc's later profession as a silk flower manufacturer, and the powerful contrast that this held to her wild feral-child foundations. As a luxury fabric with natural, animal origins, a complex history of trade, transport and the merging of cultures, the story of silk hold great parallels to the story of my subject. The malleable, translucent qualities of the fabric allow the building of visual layers in the traditions of old master glazing techniques, obscuring and revealing, selectively and through chance, as stories are obscured through history, and 'savage' is hidden within humanity.
    Artist bio Born 1990, Sydney, Australia. I grew up and Sydney and completed my BFA in Painting and Drawing in 2010 at the College of Fine arts. I also spent a year studying at the IUAV university in Venice, Italy. I use painting to explore my interest in the fragility of human life, the cloudiness of human nature and the stories and memories that hold us together as a species. I like to play with photography, craft and new media, and I am increasing interested in combining painting with sculptural and sound art installation. I have exhibited works in both Venice (FondazioneBuziol, March 2010), and Sydney (Verge Gallery February 2011, Carriageworks December 2010, Kudos Gallery November 2010) and am currently undertaking a studio residency through Serial Space Anyplace Projects in Rozelle, Sydney.

  • 7. Artist: Susan
    Title: Daisies
    Medium: Acrylic/oil stick on paper
    Size: 75x55cm
    Art description Abstract expressionism - a vibrant and colourful floral painting
    Artist bio My art career began on a small island off the coast of Far North Queensland. I believe that the brilliant colour of the Queensland sun and landscape inspired the bold line, design and freedom of my paintings. My works are derived from a wide range of subjects, both abstract and objective. I have a sense of play and am freely experimental with most mediums which is reflected in the paintings. I have always been passionate about the French Fauve painters and my work has been influenced by their energy and use of vibrant colour. My paintings have been shown at various regional exhibitions in Australia and they are hung in private and corporate collections worldwide.

  • 9. Artist: Maxwell Gillon
    Title: "It's Better To Burn Out Than To Fade Away" 2010
    Medium: Felt Tip Pen On Cardoard
    Size: 3 A2 Works
    Art description This 3 part series reflects upon the complexities surrounding death and fame and the links between the two, the opinions are left ambiguous as conflicting opinions regarding the subject's life and death are imbeded in the background as text. The work centres around how an early or publicised death often concretes the memory of the dead as a tragic hero, when one dies in the spotlight suddenly the media draws attention away from the negativity they focused on before to the positive aspects, the series reflects how we all rejoice in a public death. human kind revolves around death, it is the only thing that is certain, it is where we are all going to, in some twisted way we are all seduced by the idea of a beautiful death, of a james dean. possibly our macabe interest in the media death stems from a need for the concept of death to forever be present in our society in order to cling to our own mortality.
    Artist bio maxwellgillon is a young and emerging artist of 18 years old, his inspirations include art film-makers such as wernerherzog, igmarbergman and harmony korine.His subjects often stem from the contemplative literature of authors such as georgeorwell, j.g. ballard and arthurrimbaud. His work has previously had comparisons to intricate comic book art and op art.

    Title: Another Brick in the Wall
    Medium: Mixed Media on paper
    Size: 100cm x 75cm
    Art description Reflecting the rising incidence of violence on our streets, this piece is thought provoking offering insights into domestic problems via the collaged bricks on the wall behind the sparring individuals.

    Title: Tortured Economy
    Medium: Graphite on paper
    Size: 100cm x 75 cm
    Art description A depiction of public transport. The suggestion is there is beauty in the ordinary and while train travel is not always looked on favourably this artwork evokes a feeling of peace. The title is an ironic take on this economic means of transport.

  • 17. Artist: Claude Jones
    Title: Bird Watching
    Medium: Acrylic, pencil, collage and screenprint on paper
    Size: 100 x 95.5 cm
    Art description "Birdwatching' is one of a series of works in which I attempt to highlight the cruel and contradictory ways in which we treat other living creatures in accordance with our taxonomic categorizations of them. The delicacy of drawing, soft colours and child-like fairytale guise of these works potently enhances the grim impact and the reality of man's perplexing duplicity
    Artist bio Claude Jones is a Sydney based artist who creates hybrid, mutant and anthropomorphized forms that question our complex and often contradictory relationship with nature. Since 2005, the artist has been exploring the theme of hybridism in a series of solo exhibitions with titles including Taxonomy, Peculiar Biologies, Mythology & Biology, Mutation & Imagination and Hybrid states. Jones has participated in numerous group exhibitions both nationally and internationally.

  • 19. Artist: Wilson Arbis
    Title: For We Are Young And Free
    Medium: Charcoal on Paper
    Size: 77cm X 61cm
    Art description The drawing depicts the sense of emotions of what it is like to look in through in the life of a refugee that are detained. It has always been a controversial subject often overlooked and forgotten, left behind.
    Artist bio I was born in South East Asia and grew up from a small fishing town in the Philippines. Migrated to Australia in 1997 and have since come to love and enjoy the benefits of being a part of this country and what is has to offer.

  • 21. Artist: Sarah Park
    Title: Illuminate
    Medium: Oil on Linen
    Size: 46 x 61 cm
    Art description Up until my self acceptance, I have always disregarded my scars or have tried to ignore them. My anger towards my scars have almost made me seek medical treatment to remove them. 'Illuminate' depicts my embracement of my scars as an organic signature and a lasting monument of my survival. Instead of acknowledging the negativity our society places on beauty and on scars, I'm fighting to assert the beauty of individuality and personal importance in people's scars and even if it appears unusual, there is beauty that can found within them.
    Artist bio Sarah is a Sydney based emerging artist and is currently studying a Master of Art at UNSW COFA. She also holds a Bachelor of Arts (Creative Arts), and a Diploma of Graphic Design. Sarah's work concerns with using her body as a canvas and subject matter which has gives her a therapeutic method of self-acceptance and happiness. Some of Sarah's most recent exhibitions include 'Formation' - Gallery Red, 1200 West: Fowlers Gap Show - COFA SPACE, Small Works Prize - Brunswick Street Gallery, Rob McNamara Exhibition, and 'Beyond First Impression: What Changes if You Get to Know me?' - Collingwood Gallery.

  • 23. Artist: Sarah Park
    Title: In Light, In Shadows
    Medium: Oil on Linen
    Size: 46 x 61 cm
    Art description 'In Light, In Shadows' deals with the central theme in my work coping with memories from the past and finding beauty within my scars that has stereotypically been labeled with negative connotations, and as a permanent mark of tragedy. The scars are shown here emerging from the shadows and reaching into the light as a way of symbolising my acceptance.

  • 25. Artist: Eva Hampel
    Title: Mallee Story : My Grandmother's necklace never saw a Ball
    Medium: Oil on canvas
    Size: 91cm X 122cm
    Art description My Grandmother's life was a hard one in the arid Mallee country of Northwest Victoria. There, after the trials of WW2 and years struggling to raise a family of five children, my grandparents finally lost their small soldier settler farm to drought, dust storms, and plagues of locusts and mice. My Grandmother received this necklace very late in her life, when her opportunities to experience the grace and romance it embodies were long past, and this painting reflects on that sadness. The fall of the necklace suggests the lack of her body to support it, and the drapery both creates a setting, and conceals something unseen, something unattainable, suggesting perhaps the melancholy of being unable to achieve other possibilities in her life. There is an emphasis on the creation of a luminous quality of light, and a sense of something missing, something beyond.
    Artist bio BIOGRAPHY I have now pursued practice in creative art since the late 1990s, following a longstanding interest in art underlying my design career. I come to the creative arts from a background in landscape architecture and the environmental sciences. The discipline of landscape design is a strongly creative field. The best landscape design identifies the 'sense of place' of the design location and highlights that quality through an expressive design solution. My design training, as well as the detailed understanding of natural environments that stems from my scientific studies and a strong personal interest in wild places, strongly underlie my current practice in painting, particularly landscape painting. 1980 BACHELOR OF SCIENCE WITH FIRST CLASS HONOURS, University of Sydney.

  • 35. Artist: Jenny Papalexandris
    Title: Loop
    Medium: Oil and acrylic on canvas
    Size: 90x30cm
    Art description The series of abstract paintings are part of an ongoing study into the subjective response to colour and form. The paintings reference the natural world only as an impetus for contemplation. Each captures subtle shifts in tone and mood. Colour is at times leached out or saturated, forms are affected by light which evoke emotive and narrative themes through broad gestural brushstrokes in a range of luminous colour built up in layers. These paintings explore the clear radiant light and the soft forms of the landscape around me on the South Coast of NSW.

    Size: 100 x 67cms
    Art description PATRICIA CASEY - ELSEWHERE - ARTIST STATEMENT Where are we when we dream? Where is our consciousness? Safe in our bodies or elsewhere? When we sleep our subconscious takes over and through our slumber we are able to live other lives and to have experiences far removed from our conscious reality. Sometimes exhilarating, dreams can also be confusing and unsettling. This body of work explores the realm of our dreams.

    Title: The Chain Gang
    Medium: Charcoal and gouache
    Size: 51.5cm (h) x 65.5cm (w)
    Art description These Aboriginal women of the Kimberley region were convicted of cattle killing in 1896. Despite their treatment they walk with pride. I would like today's people to think about what these women, their children and their men went through back then.
    Artist bio After working in administrative and customer service positions for many years I studied Visual Arts and Contemporary Craft Certificate III at Bega Tafe and graduated in December 2009. Upon completion I was awarded the Illawarra Tafe Student Association Encouragement Award. I was also selected as a finalist in the 2009 Country Energy Countryscapes prize with a small acrylic (30cm x 30cm) titled Candelo Crossing which was on the cover of the 2009 Lismore Regional Gallery Countryscapes exhibition and also featured in the 2009 RM Williams Australian Outback Magazine Oct/Nov issue. In 1992 I worked as an Arts Assistant where I was responsible for helping to teach children from Kinder to Year 6 at Wolumla Primary School (1 dpw) using part of the curriculum at the time and incorporating my own and the children's ideas. Some of the children's work was then exhibited at the JR Kirkland Art Prize that year. I continue to draw and paint from home and hope to have my first solo exhibition in 2011.

    Title: Lone Shadows
    Medium: Paper Cuts
    Size: 17 cm x 17 cm
    Art description The artwork was inspired by my daily walk at the Centennial park in Sydney. I would usually walk towards the direction of the sun and hence all the long shadows would fall in my direction along the avenue. It made an interesting pattern and the trees were almost always seen silhouetted against the golden summer light. My effort here was to play with the light and shadow, the positives and the negatives in the frame.
    Artist bio I am an architect by profession and paper artist by passion. I embarked upon my papery journey in late 2009 and haven't looked back since. It started as paper artworks and then I proceeded on to creating lamps out of food packaging boxes and used paper bags. I had all my works on exhibit at the North Sydney Community Centre's markets in August 2010.

    Title: Untitled
    Medium: Etching
    Size: 327mm x 240mm
    Art description Part of a series of 'automatic' drawings, combined with bubbly 'oil and water' effects, Untitled is highly textural and tactile. They evoke figuration or representation from the spontaneous abstracted form, from corals or sea creatures, to gnarly trees or topographic terrain maps. They expose the human desire and comfort in familiarity and recognition, but at the same time a deep intrigue in the unknown.
    Artist bio Second year student at Sydney College of Art, I love working with notions of time and space, planning and spontaneity, and pattern and permutation. I am very much interested in the processes of art making, and believe that art can be as much for the artist as it is for the audience.

    Title: Mint Gusto
    Medium: oil on canvas
    Size: 90 x 90 cm
    Art description As a child, I was a tear away. In an effort to relieve my parents, my Grandad took me for long walks around Sydney Harbour. We'd spend entire days just wandering, enjoying each other's company in the sun, lifting rocks for crabs and finding discarded treasures. I remember one day in particular when we fished with hand lines under Jeffery Street Wharf. We didn't catch anything big enough to keep, but I remember looking deeply into the oddly vivid green water, watching seaweed sway as light played across the surface. That night, armed with a pack of fresh textas, I tried to capture what I had seen. Although the drawing itself looked like nothing in particular, it prompted beauty held in memory. .
    Artist bio JOHN PHILLIPS Recent works take fading memories as a starting point for highly layered and complex studies of the nuances of Australian light through salt water. An intention is to play with the frayed edge of abstraction. The viewer is restricted from instant recognition, causing more intimate inspection for signs of familiarity.

Some children, and even some carers, would become very frustrated with being unable to perform a task, consequently feeling isolated and separate.

    Artist bio Gabriela Soelkner I can still remember vividly the first time I put pencil to paper and experienced the excitement of drawing , I would of been 9 or 10 years old and the wonder of seeing ideas appear as images is still with me today . After completing a three year visual arts drawing certificate in 1993 I began exhibiting in various art awards and group exhibitions . At the end of that year I also had my first solo exhibition at Brisbane's Museum of Contemporary Art's Loading Bay Gallery . My art practice has included participating in many workshops with highly regarded artists such as Mike Parr , Andrew Sibley and Graham Fransella . I have exhibited in too many group exhibitions to remember and have also entered a number of Art Awards . Twenty years ago I joined a printmaking collective and began experimenting with combinations of woodcut and drawing . With a fellow artist I established a small company' Collaborart' specialising in site specific screenprints up to 23 metres in length . While I enjoyed designing I soon realised I have a greater passion for drawing spontaneously without a preconceived outcome or plan . I have collaborated with other visual artists but prefer drawing alone in my studio by the creek on the boundary of Wollumbin World Heritage National Park. I have been inspired by the work of Emily Kngwarreye , Ian Fairweather , Sidney Nolan , Mike Parr , Sean Scully, Mark Rothko , Rover Thomas and Cy Twombley to name a few . My art practice often invests my life with synchronised insight and moments of pure freedom . For me a successful drawing is an ' alive ' work and by that I mean a drawing that is allowed to speak for itself and reflects life's mystery

    Title: Industrial Cathedral Eveleigh
    Medium: ink,pastel,acrylic paint on paper
    Size: 115 x 75cm
    Art description I paint the damaged, derelict, doomed & disappeared. Through my art I have explored many industrial sites in Sydney that were off limits to the public :Cockatoo Island; Eveleigh Railway Workshops; industrial sites in Pyrmont & Rozelle; the wharves of Barangaroo, Woolloomooloo, Walsh Bay, Glebe Island & White Bay. The astounding rate of Sydney's recent development has both fascinated & repelled me. My challenge is painting to an unknown but inevitable time limit as buildings are demolished as fast as I can paint them. I have an uncanny instinct for selecting subjects that are about to vanish. Ironically the attraction of these places is their poignant impermanence. As a plein air painter, I set up my easel by the side of the road, on windswept rooftops or on demolition sites.The challenges of painting outdoors include distractions from workmen & passers-by, constantly changing light & Sydney's notoriously unpredictable weather. Almost everything that I have painted has either been demolished or changed beyond all recognition: the pubs have been gentrified, working class terraces are replaced by apartment blocks and old warehouses are converted into offices. My paintings show the cycle of abandonment,decay, destruction and renewal of the inner-city landscape - testament to the ending of an era. 'Industrial Cathedral Eveleigh' at first sight a medieval stained glass window in Chatres, is actually a grubby vandalized corner of a derelict goods yard.

My paintings show the cycle of abandonment,decay, destruction and renewal of the inner-city landscape - testament to the ending of an era. 'Industrial Cathedral Mortlake', an old gasworks, was a decayed & vandalized relic with a skeletal roof & a crazy zig-zag of buttresses holding up the crumbling walls. For all that it was once a strictly functional industrial building, this building combined the haunting melancholy of a bombed out Gothic cathedral with a whiff of the surrealism of Salvador Dali.

My paintings show the cycle of abandonment,decay, destruction and renewal of the inner-city landscape - testament to the ending of an era. 'Industrial Cathedral Pyrmont' focuses on the mysterious patterns of shadow made by the fall of light. The cavernous space & rows of columns reminded me of the interiors of cathedrals & ruined abbeys. The wall at the back was made of the famous butter-yellow Pyrmont sandstone, which has been quarried to decorate the best loved historic Sydney buildings such as the Australian Museum, the Sydney Post Office, the University of Sydney. At sunset the rock face would catch the last rays of light & the derelict warehouse would be transformed.

    Title: Blue Lines
    Medium: Water colour & pastel on canvas
    Size: 61 x 61 cm
    Art description I try to use different elements and materials from my background, mostly related to female activities, to make my artworks. Carpet can be considered as an art form and it also is a famous handcraft of Iran. Handmade carpets are mainly woven by women. In addition, Farsi language as the official language of Iran is another emlement. Therefore, I manipulate forms of Farsi alphabetic letters and try to show them as lines. Lines are twisted to resemble woven Persian carpet threads.
    Artist bio I am originally from Iran. My undergraduate degree is in engineering. However, it was never satisfying for me so I moved into the field of art, attending theoretical and practical courses. My artistic background is abstract painting on a large scale. I have had four solo exhibitions, one joint exhibition and number of private shows. I have also taken part in several group shows. Almost three years ago, I migrated to Australia, applied for Master of Studio Arts (MSA) in Sydney College of Arts and completed the program. Now, I am a current student in Master of Fine Art (MFA) at the same university. During my stay in Australia, my art works mostly shifted from two dimensional to three dimensional works. They carry my cultural, social and political background plus my individual perspective.

    Title: Abre Los Ojos (fromthe series "Juegos Con Luz Y Espacio")
    Medium: Photography, Type C Print
    Size: 48x60cm
    Art description The works "Illuminado" and "Abre Los Ojos" from the series 'Juegos Con Luz Y Espacio' force the viewer to question what is real. Objects and interior spaces, which are ultimately solid and tangible, are deconstructed into fake narratives whereby one negotiates what is or isn't fictional. At first glance what appears to be an image of an interior flooded with sunlight, holds on closer inspection seemingly flat qualities. By photographing three-dimensional models constructed from wood, the complex limits of perception and representation are crossed, toying with ones preconceived notions of what is represented. These works, built and shot in a studio, have become images of sculptures created for the single purpose of being photographed. The works exist in various degrees of being detached from reality, creating an ironic tension between real and fiction. The minimalism of the images lends a particular sterile quality to the interiors, providing a sense of silence and static beauty for the viewer to meditate upon.

    Art description I try to challenge myself in all mediums including experimental work on different surfaces. My work 'the Edge' and 'Dry Spell' have been finalists in the Mosman Art Prize and the Paddington Art Prize respectively. Painting on metal is Vanessa's most recent, and exciting innovation. Aluminium or stainless steel is used as the base for paintings to create stunning wall art that literally reflects light and colour. By layering a variety of materials including bitumen, shellac, hydrochloric acid and metal paints, the images evolve through the metal.

    Art description An Arctic scene merging abstraction with realism
    Artist bio Currently my work is exploring the boundaries between natural and unnatural. Where does this line lie, if at all? My images are multi-layered using techniques that involve total control to random marks such as dribbles and splashes. As well as canvas I am using recycled metal objects that have begun to rust which not only give beautiful texture and colour to the works, but are an example of how this natural/unnatural dichotomy is not clearly edged. Also, in a similar polarity, I am attempting to merge abstract expressionism with elements of realism.

I am interested in themes such as loss and bewilderment and I seek visual metaphors to represent these feelings. My aim is to communicate things that cannot be put into words through the use of symbols and metaphor.

    Title: 'Ella it's time to go home'
    Medium: Oil on board
    Size: 71x122cm
    Art description This painting depicts my daughter Ella on the sandstone headlands around Clovelly in Sydney's eastern fringe. While no overt symbolism or metaphor is intended, I am interested in the emotive possibilities of contrasting her small scale and innocence with the vastness of the ocean and the vaguely lunar, even alien strangeness of the sandstone formations.

    Title: The Twelve Sent Out
    Medium: Acrylic on Canvas
    Size: 61cm x 91cm
    Art description An allegory of the 12 apostles, being sent out to the cities. To have scripture laid out on canvas so simplistically and then again seemingly cryptic is the aim of this painting. Depending on our viewpoint, it's also how we can view spirituality - be it literal, symbolic or a bit beyond our understanding. Inconsequential items like fruit and crockery can take on more importance in our eyes than the actual meaning.

    Medium: enamel, acrylic on plastic sheets, fan, bullclips, wool, video (5:30min)
    Size: h 3m x w 4 m x d 1.20m
    Art description IDEA _ When we travelled along the Silver City Highway, we had a break. There was a single dead tree; and in its branches, there was caught a white plastic bag, flagging in the wind. It was the only sound surrounded by nothing else than rocky soil and absolute silence under a dispiteous sun. CONCEPT _ Three large-scaled (delicate & very light) plastic sheets, painted in the 'Outback colours' red & black, hanging on wool threads. A small fan will slightly move the sheets; that creates a slight sizzling noise surrounded by the silence of the room. A video with close-up shots of the sun and moving clouds will be projected onto the waving sheets (duration 5:30mins, looped).

    Medium: enamel, acrylic on canvas
    Size: 180x144cm
    Art description The outlines of the Austral-Asian coasts are fascinating to me. In NZ and Australia I always have my scribble book to hand, and I can't help it to try to see the coast line like a bird. To abstract/stylize the coast is an interesting encounter for me, to make the incredible power of nature visible, but not obvious. The viewer is encouraged to explore the painting, just as the secrets and wonders, the Earth offers.

    Title: 10-10
    Medium: type-C photographic print
    Size: 120 x 120cm
    Art description We normally see and relate to things within a context. We consider what came before, imagine what will come after, draw conclusions about relationships, and create an impression in our mind which may or may not be accurate to the reality before us. This impression is very valuable because at any time, even when the object cannot be seen, we can feel comfortable that we understand it, that it has its place in our psyche and our picture of the world. Therefore we become attached to this impression, and even years later, if we see the same object, we continue to relate to the impression in our mind rather than the true nature of the object itself. The context is so important that without it we struggle to make conclusive assessments of things. In fog, the effect of the context is partly removed.
    Artist bio Svetlana Bailey was born in St. Petersburg in 1984 and lives and works in Sydney. In 2010 Svetlana graduated from the UNSW College of Fine Arts with a Bachelor of Fine Arts (Hons 1st Class). Her work focuses on photographing various surroundings covered in fog. When seen in fog, one is able to experience one's environment outside its usual context. This generates enough uncertainty that the objects in the photograph become less tied to our preconceptions and appear in unexpected ways. We are reminded that the reality that surrounds us may not be exactly as we would like to believe.
