I’ve only been back a bit over a week now, and I still haven’t gotten over the incredible time I had in The Red Centre. My trip started with the Artists Preview of the Alice Prize, the official exhibition opening, a lovely artists dinner at The Star of Alice, and a series of talks by invited artists.
After which I went on to explore the West MacDonnell Ranges, Kings Canyon, Uluru & Kata Tjuta, solo in a four-wheel drive. While I was at Uluru I was fortunate enough to be among the first few groups of people to visit the breath-taking installation Field of Light by Bruce Munro. If you get the chance to visit I highly recommend heading out to see the installation.
Thank you to everyone at the Araluen Arts Centre in Alice Springs for your wonderful hospitality during all of the events. It was a pleasure to have been selected as a finalist in such a remarkable exhibition and to have the opportunity to discuss my work and practice to such a large group of people.
The 39th Alice Prize is on until Monday 13 June 2016 at the Araluen Arts Centre, Alice Springs.
