13 February 2012 | Canberra’s Brian Corr is the winner of Tom Malone Prize, an annual prize for contemporary glass artists run by the Art Gallery of Western Australia.

The judging panel, which included AGWA director Stefano Carboni, commented on
Enso, the winning work: “We were truly impressed by
Corr’s achievement in balancing intuition and technique to convey form, and form within space. His activation of glass as a medium of light sees him employing its natural qualities in a subtly dramatic way. The captivating interplay of void and shadow is the perfect showcase for his masterful combination of craft and poetry.”

The finalists exhibition, which also includes work by Nick Mount and Tom Moore, continues at AGWA until 2 April 2012.
