Gold Coast Art Prize 2104

Gold Coast Art Prize Finalist 2014

'Forest Horse' by Anna Glynn has been selected as a finalist in the Gold Coast Art Prize 2014.

This poetic work relies on the natural materials - a sweep of a traditional brush laden with Chinese ink - precise but also random at the same time - water and ink – control and flow - duality of materials.

"The exhibition is a showcase for excellent contemporary art practice from across Australia and the selected artworks represent many of the key trends in contemporary art."
