Androvian Jennifer van Ratingen has won first place in the recent intercol Palladian Fine Art competition.
Titled ‘Inherit’, Jennifer’s artwork received a tremendously positive response from the judges:
“Striking and notably beautiful. A subtle use of symbolism enhanced and supported by a sophisticated and strong display of technical skill. The work is relatable and connects emotively with the viewer.”
Jennifer says: “I made this piece while everyone in Sydney was in isolation, so I was inspired a lot by the proximity to my family and having to be more self-reflective. In my work I wanted to include a lot of different elements of my heritage and connect to the past, tradition and nostalgia through depicting recognisable objects from my background.”
Congratulations to Jennifer on her win; well deserved for a genuinely impressive talent.
Fellow Andrew’s woman Penny Butler received a ‘Highly Commended’ for her work which we look forward to sharing with our community shortly.
