Genevieve Kemarr Loy receives commendation

Genevieve Kemarr Loy receives commendation in art prize

Lauraine Diggins Fine Art is pleased to announce that Genevieve Kemarr Loy has been commended in the 2011 Tattersall’s Landscape Art Prize in Brisbane. Genevieve received the commendation for her work, Akwerlkerrmwerlker.

In Akwerlkerrmwerlkerr, Genevieve depicts the green plant that grows like a lawn alongside the road. It has white flowers on top and the bush turkey likes to eat the seeds.

Genevieve’s paintings are characterised by a beautiful and careful handling of paint, a harmonious sense of colour and great control of the delicate spidery marks that make their way across her canvas.

You can view the exhibition on the Tattersalls Club website.

NEW EXHIBITION BY STEPHEN BOWERS

South Australian ceramicist Stephen Bowers delights with an exhibition of new work, STEPHEN BOWERS: LARKS TONGUES IN ASPIC, showing at Lauraine Diggins Fine Art, 27 November – 18 December 2010. Featuring a selection of beautifully decorated chargers and other more quirky items including a series of skulls, with their play on ‘bone china’ and a surfboard, Boarder Lines which wittily looks at the issue of migration and refugees in Australia.

ART FOR SUPER

We are pleased to confirm that all three major political parties in Australia have now reached a consensus position to rule out the Cooper Report proposals to ban artworks from self managed superannuation funds. This is a great win however there is still an issue in regard to new standards for storing artworks to ensure there is no ‘personal benefit’.
