Reconciliation Week - In conversation with Damien Shen

Newmarch Gallery is excited to bring you 'I'm Here', an interview with Damien Shen. 

Damien Shen is a South Australian man of Ngarrindjeri and Chinese descent. As an artist he draws on both of these powerful cultural influences to create works of intense personal meaning. In using his artistic talent to share his story he aims to open the eyes of viewers to new ways of seeing Australian identity and Aboriginal art.

Interviewed by Pete Lindon, member of Prospect Arts Action Network, this is not to be missed.

Our Public Art Collection - can you help us?

March 2020

We have commenced the exciting project of mapping and recording the entire Public Art Collection throughout City of Prospect. It’s quite a task ahead of us and we are calling on art enthusiasts, locals, community members, artists and the general public to help us. Do you know the artist/s that have completed the murals or sculptural pieces? Do you have old newspaper cuttings or community newsletters featuring installations or groups that did works? Do you know dates of installation or maybe changes that a piece may have had?


We’d love to hear from you with any information that helps us piece together our collection – and the more we know from you, the better this project will be!


Please contact us via for more information or if you have any questions about what or how to help.

Prospect Portrait Prize Winners Announced

December 2019

Jasmine Crisp is the winner of the Prospect Portrait Prize for 2019. 


'Jasmine has presented a complex emotive portrait of one individuals journey, the trials and tribulations of being away from one’s home. In this tour de force of technique she references Sandro Botticelli’s classic  Birth of Venus created in 1486, often referred to as the ‘Venus on a half shell’, which remains a symbol of idealised beauty and the perfection of form as conceived in Italy over 5 centuries ago. Jasmine has presented a complex emotional portrait which both indulges the viewers gaze and subverts it. She is at once beautiful and tragic; intimate and isolated. The portrait is also an evocation of humanities current state anxiety in regards the natural world. She is at once a part of it and apart from it'. 

Russell Kelty, Independent Judge, Assistant Curator, Asian Art, Art Gallery of South Australia.

Paul's work captures his father in the weeks before he passed.
