Winners of the Queensland Figurative 2014

Adolphe Piche 2

The Judges Comments  -from Wendy Sharpe


It was an honour to be asked to judge the inaugural Queensland Figurative Art Prize. It was wonderful to see such a range of different approaches and ideas.

I would like to congratulate all the artists who entered and to pass on to those who were not hung this year - don't be disheartened - try again next time.


I'm sure you will all agree that the work is of a very high standard. It was very difficult to choose!

I decided to include two equal highly commendeds and five equal commendeds, though there are many other paintings of merit.

Congratulations to you all and enjoy this exciting exhibition!
