'Life on the edge - High tide' ©2012. Nicola Moss. Acrylic, natural ochre, charcoal frottage, rice paper, hand cut papers. Framed size 78 x 173cm.
Last month I headed down to Adelaide to see the finalists work including my piece - 'Life on the Edge - High Tide', which was shortlisted for the Waterhouse Natural History Art Prize, 2012. There were as expected, many high quality artworks in the show across a broad range of mediums and processes. I spent a couple of hours looking at all the works, each presented beautifully in the exhibition rooms of the South Australian Museum, it was well worth the trip to see them all in the flesh.
The Waterhouse Natural History Art Prize is Australia’s richest prize for natural history art. The exhibition is on display at the South Australian Museum from 21st July to 9th September 2012.
