Premier Award: Mike Crawshaw - Last Rites, oil on canvas
It was my intention to invite enquiry into dissonance in our contemporary moment and the pernicious inevitability of disorder. The painting represents an intentional clash of referential systems – of painting’s collision with photography – of news versus real-estate advertising – and of atrocity’s visitation upon zones of exclusivity.
