Perth Institute of Contemporary Arts (PICA) held their opening night on Friday for the prestigious 'Hatched: National Graduate Show'. 34 students from 22 art schools had to fight for the $35,000 Doctor Harold Schenberg art prize which was judged in the morning and announced that night.
Zoe Kirkwood, a graduate of the University of South took out the prize for her bold and bright installation consisting of painting and sculptures. It's hard not to be utterly captivated by such a piece, the colours and composition is feel-good and takes surrealism to a new dimension.
Dancing Chopsticks by Annie TsaiMy dear friend, Annie Tsai was one of the talented artists that was showcasing in this exhibition. Her major work called, 'Dancing Chopsticks' is an interactive piece that shouldn't be missed, so make sure that you check it out PICA.
I loved attending the opening night, and sharing memories with some fellow artists. A couple of glasses of wine and good company is always a great night in my opinion.
