Congratulations to Lara Merrett, winner of this years Ravenswood Australian Women's Art Prize.
The winning work, ‘Dusking (Nature Banners)’ was made on Yuin Country in Lara Merrett’s local Bendalong community. It's the artist’s first foray into natural ink dye experiments, exposed to the elements, setting in the permanency of the ink. Alongside her well known ink and acrylic on linen, it signals a shift for Lara towards merging her community and environmental work with her stunning colourist and formal investigations.​​​​​​​​
