Congratulations to Richard Lewer on winning the 2015 Albany Art Prize!
This prestigious award is in its 8th year, offering $25,000 and a 4 week studio residency to artists living and working in Australia.
Richard Lewer on the chosen work:
Last year the Western Australian government implemented a shark culling program off the swimming beaches of Perth and the South West coastline following the deaths of 7 people. Being a surfer, I was spooked by the fatal attacks but like many locals, was also concerned about the efficacy of the government’s fear-driven policy and the brutality of the baited drum lines used to capture the sharks.
My work explores extremes and conflict; the shark culling program attracted local, national and international attention, and public demonstrations were held around the country; as a social realist I joined the 6000-strong protest at Cottesloe Beach to document the fervent debate in my local community.
This work will be exhibited alongside the finalists in Albany, 4 September - 11 October.
