nick glade-wright ― pro hart finalist

It’s a long way from Tasmania, but the talents of Handmark landscape artist, Nick Glade-Wright have been recognised in our red centre. He has just been selected as a finalist in The Pro Hart Outback Art Prize.

Strong rock formations feature prominently in Nick’s paintings, and he turns to them once more in Vanishing Point. “Having had experiences in outback Australia I am inspired by the counterbalance and interaction between the solidity and rich colours of rock formations, and how they can gradually fade into the immensity of an ephemeral sky.”

But this work also serves as a metaphor about global warming and all that is vanishing from our landscape. The award will be announced at the Broken Hill Art Gallery in August.
