Congratulations to BA (Fine Art) (Honours) alumnus Caroline overall winner of the 'the churchie' 2018 for her series of three oil paintings. Caroline Gasteen is a Brisbane-based artist whose practice focuses on the two-dimensional image as object. Her style draws on modernism and abstraction, and she has a particular interest in colour relationships and dimensionality. Her series of three small oil paintings is the latest iteration of her creative process: paintings of photos of models made from photos. The artist finds humour in the sentimentality of memorialising a model made of wire and paper in an oil painting, but is drawn to the sense of potentiality that the process conveys. She explains, ‘The notion that an idea is most perfect, whole and potent before it enters the messy world of reality resonates deeply with me. The real thing isn’t the desired outcome for me, it’s just an excuse to make.Guest judge, Lisa Havilah of Carriageworks, awarded the non-acquisitive prize money of $15,000 sponsored by BSPN Architecture at the opening of the finalists’ exhibition at Queensland University of Technology (QUT) Art Museum in Brisbane on 7 September 2018.
