I was pleased to discover that my work Gorecki (2017) was selected as a finalist for the 2018 online exhibition for the Contemporary Art Awards.
The online exhibition will run from the 11 January – 11 June 2018 with the winners announced on the 1 February 2018. The finalist list of exhibitors is currently published and available for sale on the awards website. View here.
Gorecki speaks of the paradox of romantic love. Intense passion, which also strangely brings calmness and peace. It was titled after the beautiful song of the same name and same intention by singer/songwriters Lamb.
“If I should die this very moment, I wouldn’t fear
For I’ve never known completeness, Like being here
Wrapped in the warmth of you, Loving every breath of you
Still my heart this moment, Oh it might burstAll this time I’ve loved you, And never known your face, All this time I’ve missed you, and searched this human race,Here is true peaceHere my heart knows calm, Safe in your soul, Bathed in your sighs
Wanna stay right her, Till the end of time
Till the earth stops turning, Gonna love you until the seas run dry
I’ve found the one I’ve waited for”
