Paul Guest Prize 2018 finalist

First shown back in March in the exhibition Heads and Bodies at Charles Nodrum Gallery, Melbourne, The Secret Plait (2016-17, oil pastel and chinagraph pencil on Khadi rag paper, 76.5 x 56 cm), is one of fifty works shortlisted for the Paul Guest Prize 2018 at Bendigo Art Gallery.

I discovered the diagram for this Secret Plait (and yes, that really is what it’s called - I’ve no idea why, but the name serves my work well) many years ago in an old book in my local library.

The Paul Guest Prize 2018 runs from 30 June - 9 September
