In Sydney at the Art Gallery of NSW, the winner of the Dobell Prize for drawing has been announced. Ana Pollak’s “Mullet Creek” has taken first place, giving the artist $20,000.
I don’t think drawing gets the credit it really deserves, so I love awards like the Dobell prize for drawing.
Artist and judge of the Dobell prize for 2007 said “This is an articulate and generous drawing that clearly refers to a river landscape. Also, the work says something about the general language of drawing through the quality of line – the juxtaposition of both relaxed and tense lines.”
