Congratulations to Belynda Henry who is a finalist in the 2018 Paddington Art Prize with her work 'A Capricious Landscape'.
The Paddington Art Prize is a $30,000 National acquisitive prize, awarded annually for a painting inspired by the Australian landscape. Established in 2004 by Arts Patron, Marlene Antico OAM, this National 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.
Painting the landscape is an ever changing process. “Capricious landscape” is attempting to capture the ever changing mood, the impulsive behaviour and the unpredictable beauty of Australia. - Belynda Henry
