JASPER KNIGHT, PADDINGTON ART PRIZE FINALIST 2016
Congratulations to Jasper Knight who is a finalist in the Paddington Art Prize with his work 'Red Ladder, Yellow Ladder' 2016, enamel, acrylic, masonite, plywood, perspex and copper on board.
The Paddington Art Prize is a $25,000 National acquisitive prize for a painting inspired by the Australian landscape and is now in it's 13th year. An exciting addition to the Australian Arts calendar, the Paddington Art Prize takes its place among the country's most lucrative and highly coveted painting prizes. The prize encourages the interpretation of the landscape as a significant contemporary genre, its long tradition in Australian painting as a key contributor to our national ethos, and is a positive initiative in private patronage of the arts in Australia.
