Congratulations India Mark!

We are very pleased to announce that India Mark has been selected as a finalist in the Archibald Prize 2018, with her painting Candy.

"Sarah M. is a film student and sex worker.

 I came across Sarah on Instagram, a platform she uses prolifically to advocate for sex worker rights. Breaking down stigmas, prejudices, attitudes and behaviour that threaten the health, safety and professionalism of those within the industry, her online profile endows an invaluable human standpoint amidst objectification and victimisation that today remains socially prevalent.

My painting aims to realise Sarah’s knowledge and confidence. I built up the surface and space of the portrait in a way that amplifies the impact of the painted human figure. She is the kind of person who can instill change in cultural perspective and I wanted to honour that" -India Mark

Lee Bethel | Flourish

For Lee Bethel, elegant constraints are the foundation of her workings, manipulating the fold, the grid and the seed. In her hands, the paper fold reveals its capacity for resilience and malleability. It is both a tangible folding of paper and a metaphorical folding of time and memory. The works suggest states of being that are "open-ended ... non-exclusive and unlimited, exterior and infinite." The inside is nothing more than a fold of the outside where the interior becomes exterior.

The Egg & Dart heads to Tasmania

Sixteen artists question the value we invest in places, spaces and objects from everyday life. Sentiment is a co-curated exhibition that explores notions of sentimentality that exists in the realms of imagination and personal experience. Artists were invited to shape and express their thoughts on the things that create emotional connection and disconnection. Using a variety of media, the works move between light and dark, fact and fiction, interest and disengagement.
