Winners 2021

Best in Exhibition

Nugget Point Light House – Jenny Buntain (Humanity Painters) 

I kept coming back to this painting as I thought it stood out from all the other works in the exhibition. Influences of cubism, Louise Henderson, Rita Angus – it spoke to me about the context of New Zealand painting which I identified with.  John Brown – art selector.
