CURATOR'S CHOICE AWARD

John Richer

"It is an honour to have my painting selected for this year’s Curator’s Choice Award. This past year, I wanted to examine the various connections we have with the objects in our lives and how they interact and define our individuality.
“Haven” is a painting of my father, exploring the association and union we have with our belongings and how they reflect our identity. I thank you for the opportunity to show my work along with all the amazing and talented artists in this years VAM43 show."
