The 60th Blake Prize Exhibition

I hope you all had a lovely weekend, on Thursday night I went to the opening of the 60th annual Blake Prize Exhibition at the National Art School Gallery in support of my brother in law (Alex Cyrezko) who was one of the 72 finalists. Way to go Alex!!! This is one of Australia's most prestigious art prizes! I was so excited for him.

The theme is to investigate/question the role of religion and spirituality in contemporary Australian society. Of 1,100 entries 72 finalists were chosen for the exhibition which opened Thursday 16th September and runs till the 15th October.

It is a great exhibition with some very interesting artwork, you can see the finalists here.

This is Alex's series of 14 photographs of roadside memorials....
