Finalists chosen for The Archibald Prize 2010


The website for the Archibald is http://thearchibaldprize.com.au/ where all the finalists are now presented. Attached is the image from Pam Walpole, who entered into the Landscape section of the Archibald Prize - The Wynne, and even though I think she should have been chosen as a Finalist, it was not to be (perhaps next year). Each painting consists of five panels - each one measures - 180cms high and one metre wide - which is a depiction of the devastation left by the fires down south in 2009 - it has real burnt fence palings incorporated into the painting. It is titled "Black Saturday". A very powerful painting with a real story to tell.
