Artists’ Talks – Basil Sellers Art Prize 2010
Take part in a conversation between The Ian Potter Museum of Art Curator Bala Starr and finalists of the Basil Sellers Art Prize 2010. Finalists Glenn Morgan & David Ray respond to their works and their experience of the prize. Gain personal insights into the artists’ thought processes and what inspires them.
Time: Saturday 11 September, 2.00pm
Glenn Morgan is known for his witty dioramas of concerts and sporting events. Works on display include a bus full of Geelong Cats premiership players, the euphoric scene at Sydney Swans 2005 premiership game and Steve Waugh’s final test cricket match in 2004. Morgan’s work celebrates the spirit and energy of Australian sport.
David Ray is a ceramicist whose hand-crafted vessels incorporate an abundance of colours, textures and decals. Ray has created trophies that symbolize alternate views of triumph: coming second in a competition, being delusional about one’s abilities, or the simple achievement of just turning up.
