Congratulations to Genevieve Kemarr Loy who is a finalist in the Paddington Art Prize for 2017. This is the 14th year the prize for paintings inspired by the Australian landscape will be shown. Genevieve’s painting Akwerlkerrmwerlkerr 2017 (synthetic polymer on linen, 200 x 122 cm) depicts a particular plant which grows in her country which has small white flowers and seeds which the bush turkey likes to eat. Genevieve’s painting is inspired by the culture, stories, flora and fauna of her country, Utopia, N.T.
