Basil Sellers Art Prize

Posted on September 17, 2014

What better than a bit of art and sport of an Australian weekend. The Ian Potter Art Museum’s Basil Seller’s prize is a bit of an annual destination as it always puts together a classy take on our national obsessions. Sport that is. Not art. I loved the work that took the least obvious stance- Rob McHaffie’s tennis triptych being the most left-field. I am a sucker for big paintings, so could not resist William Mackinnon’s surfer landscapes. But I do think Tony Albert was a rightful winner in the impact his work makes. It is both plaintive and inspiring.
