Former student paints tutor for Refuses people's choice - Art Collector
|25 May 2010 | Visitors to the 2010 Salon des Refuses exhibition have voted Ann Cape the winner of the 12th Holding Redlich People's Choice for her portrait of painter Kevin Connor. |
''Many years ago at the National Art School I had the privilege to have Kevin as a tutor in one of my painting classes and at the time commenced a portrait of him which was never completed,'' says Cape.
''So after many intervening years I thought it would be interesting to again paint a portrait of him in association with the earlier work. The latter I have to say did not live up to expectations as it had been living in the roof with the possums for too long.''
Cape won the $2,000 prize from a field of over 1,600 entries.
