|29 November 2010 | Xiao Yu Bai has won two prizes in the Siemens-RMIT Fine Art Awards. |
Bai, who is in the third year of her Doctorate of Fine Art at RMIT University, won a $7,000 postgraduate scholarship to spend on books and materials. She was also awarded the Siemens-RMIT Acquisition prize of $1,000.
Bai was selected for her large-scale painting It is a fountain, but beyond the fountain, it is…
|“My work is part of a series of paintings about fountains that actually exist. I wanted to evoke an atmosphere of calmness, energy and contemplation for the viewer, combining Western techniques with Chinese philosophical concepts,” she says.|
Among the other students recognised in the awards was Matthew Sleeth, who won a $7,000 postgraduate scholarship.
Works by the winners and finalists will be on display at RMIT Gallery until 8 January 2011.
