Prospect Portrait Prize Winners Announced

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.
