WINNER OF THE 2018 EMMA HACK ART PRIZE

 

Congratulations Marlene Kingdon

 

 

Marlene Kingdon


We live in a throwaway culture. This work seeks to make something valuable from something that has been thrown away. My friend and teacher has gone but my memories of her have also changed over time. I seek to recollect her through images and stories but each retelling invents her anew until I can no longer recall her with clarity. My process of making reflects this exactly. I paint, wash off and paint again. Jo disappears and is remade.

 

Title: JO CADDY-1916 to about 2009
Dimensions: 9.5 x 11.5cm
Material: Acrylic paint on waste plastic.
Year: 2018

Living with a chronic condition like endometriosis can be extremely isolating. Through immersing myself in the endometriosis community and adopting the ‘spoonie’ culture, I’ve been able to accept and embrace my riddled body.


Title: Endometriosis (Fluctuation)
Dimensions: 150 x 150cm
Material: Oil on Belgian linen
Year: 2017

 

 

 

 

WINNERS ANNOUNCEMENT

 

Welcome to Emma Hack Art Prize 2018 Winners announcement!
This is the fifth year of the prize featuring 40 SA based artists work based on the theme, Culture.


This year I will again be offering a year of mentorship to the winner of the prize as well as People's Choice winner.


I would love to thank the team at Burnside Village for showing this exhibition and supporting SA artists.


The People's Choice prize of $2000 is sponsored by ARTBAR and the SA Art Collective this year it attracted over 1100 votes. A special thank you goes to Amelia Mazzone from Camelian Design for working on the prize with me the past 5 years.


I would like to announce the People's Choice winner as Ellie Kammer.


I would love to thank my co-judges for taking the time to select these wonderful finalists, Louise Feneley artist and educator and the illustrious Peter Goers!
We spent some time here last week going through the finalists and Louise sums up the winning artwork perfectly...


'One does not notice at first that this is painted on discarded plastic - just as we do not notice the insidious havoc our culture has caused by its careless misuse of used plastic. With minimal and competent means the painter, through the powerful and intense gaze, elicits the intensity many feel about this issue. This painting, though small and seemingly unobtrusive, holds a powerful presence.
It is made well and presented well.'


The 2018 Emma Hack Art Prize is awarded to Marlene Kingdon for her ‘JO Caddy’ Artwork.


Marlene is unavailable to join us as she is is in New Zealand so her friend Jane Williams will accept her prize tonight.


15% of sales to be donated to Multicultural Communities Council of South Australia, MCCSA

Firstly, I would love to thank each and every one of the finalists for entering the EHAP this year. This year we had so many fantastic entries, we are so proud of the talent we have here in SA.

Thank you for taking the time to create for the prize, you created wonderfully evocative works, interesting twists on the theme and well thought-out, truly beautiful works.
