EBB TIDE, RHYLL
Selected by our curatorial team, The BSG Prize is awarded to an artist whose entry is indicative of a practice that we are excited to support, awarding them with an exhibition with us in the upcoming 2024 exhibition schedule.
This year we have awarded the prize to an individual that has demonstrated a fresh approach to their medium that plays with traditional painting techniques, with a contrasting moody and rich palette that makes this piece stand out amongst the hang. We are excited to see the work they will produce for their awarded exhibition.
With this, Brunswick Street Gallery is pleased to present a BSG Prize to Lisa Banks for their piece Ebb Tide, Rhyll.
Of this piece, Brunswick Street Gallery issued a joint statement:
‘We were immediately captured by Lisa Banks' landscapes on show in this year's prize, though it was her piece Ebb Tide, Rhyll that stood out to us most amongst the curation. With a rich, tonal palette, the landscape feels abundant, and the stark silhouettes of the trees speak to the unique colours that come out at last light.’
Congratulations to Lisa Banks, awarded a BSG Prize as selected by the Brunswick Street Gallery’s Director Sean Smith, Gallery Manager Jacqui Burnes, and Exhibitions Manager Alex Ramsdale.
The BSG Prize winner will be awarded a $1650 contribution toward a solo exhibition at Brunswick Street Gallery in 2024.
