Constructing Installation – Mortality – 2012

Blackheath Open Art Prize – October 2013 – First Prize

African Animal Studies – 145 x 100cm – Mixed media on paper – 2013

Judge: Jo Ernsten (for information on the judge go to www.joernsten.com )

Judges comments: This work shows supreme understanding and confidence in the quality of the gestural mark. The work is fresh and immediate in its relationship to process and subject. Its simplicity, humor and humanity kept commanding me to comeback for another look and another discovery – hard to ignore.

Blackheath Members Easter Exhibition  2013

First Prize: Blackheath 1
Artist: Jody Gaham
Medium: Mixed media
Judge’s comments: This modestly scaled work is an instantly familiar streetscape to Blackheath locals and visitors. The artist has skillfully described a precise place using broad gestures, and she has captured the subdued palette and diffused light that typifies the Blue Mountains for much of the year. All three works convey a sense of weather and atmosphere that contribute strongly to a sense of place. The artist has managed to record detailed observations with an economy of gesture, colour and mark making and has demonstrated a skillful and evocative control of tone and colour. Part of the interest in this work lies in its’ succinct visual language, yet layered sense of both space and place. This work, and its two companion pieces, can be revisited often by the viewer, who will discover a little more, or something different at each viewing.
