Congratulations to Dagmar Cyrulla, a Finalist in the Fisher’s Ghost Art Award for her work, ‘Wendy’. Hosted by Campbelltown Arts Centre, the prize coincides with an annual event held in the Campbelltown community since the 1950s – the Festival of Fisher’s Ghost. Now in its 60th year, there is $72,000 in prize money to be won. Cyrulla reflects upon her creative process: “This portrait is one of six that I completed. I like to paint my subjects more than once, so I can explore limited colour palettes to express my emotional connection with the sitter. Wendy and I played in her studio with different poses, hats and lights. I wanted a sense of movement to be present in the work to express Wendy’s boundless energy and the fun we had”. For further information about the exhibition of finalists, which opens 29th October, please visit Campbelltown Arts Centre website.
