HORSE EXHIBITION, CANBERRA 2-20th Nov 2016
STILL EXHIBITION- SYDNEY NOV- DEC 2015
Grace Costa and Mark Mohell come together in this exhibition both exploring ‘organic life’ in completely different ways – positive and negative. Mark’s positive form and Grace the negative translation. This exhibition challenges the question what is beautiful? Is a flower only beautiful whilst it’s alive and fresh, yet ugly and not worthy once its dried and wilted. Does it have a new story to bear, a new look to appreciate? Is there beauty in death? The slow progressions of the everyday wear and tear, to the weight of expectation of life.
Finally the time has come!I have had a dream for the last 5 years, ever since I first entered into the National Photographic Portrait Prize (NPPP) that one day, my work would make its way onto the glorious walls of the National Portrait Gallery in my own home town of Canberra!
From 1440 entries they have selected only 45 portraits for the finalist exhibition.
So this Friday the 21st March is the official opening night where they will reveal the winner of a large sum of cash!!
I will be taking my partner, father, and the special lady that got me to the finals- Mineke Peerboom the amazing subject of my portrait. I’m looking forward to the big night and it will probably feel like a dream, but I will say this, I worked hard to become a finalist and make this possible. I leaned a lot from being knocked back every single year for the past 4 years, but I knew in my heart of hearts this day would come, after all ‘nothing is impossible’!!
I would like to thank my friends and family that constantly encouraged me, gave me honest feedback for every image I have submitted in the past and stood by my during my anquish and frustration during the process.
You can see the NPPP Competition exhibition at the National Portrait Gallery Canberra 22nd March-9 June. Then it will travel to regional areas around the nation. ENTRY FEE $10
May the best #portrait win!
WISH ME LUCK!!
