Craig MacDonald wins $20,000 sculpture prize - Art Collector

14 March 2011 | Craig MacDonald has won the Montalto Sculpture Prize 2011, an acquisitive $20,000 award for outdoor sculpture, for a 175-centimetre-tall bronze titled Witness.

The New Zealand-born artist says of his work: “Hovering just above the surface of the ground, Witness appears as if from another time – aged and totem like, its presence and movement is a reminder that time is not static and what has been seen before can be witnessed again.”

MacDonald was selected from a filed of 29 finalists including Roh Singh, John Nicholson and Carmel Wallace.

The finalists’ works have been placed throughout the 50 acre Montalto vineyard in Red Hill, Victoria and will be on show until 1 May 2011.
