|5 October 2010 | Rebecca Beardmore has won the acquisitive $12,000 Fremantle Arts Centre Print Award for her work Seeing Between II.|
Currently a lecturer at the Sydney College of Art, her work uses digital techniques alongside traditional printmaking methods.
Canberra’s Benjamin Forster was also recognised, winning the $5,000 non-acquisitive prize for a work titled Discourse, which involves thermal receipt printers and seemingly endless reels of paper. The work charts an imaginary conversation between political philosopher Karl Marx and economist Adam Smith. Each line is statistically derived from their respective major works Das Kapital and The Wealth of Nations.
The award exhibition will be on view at the Fremantle Arts Centre until 21 November 2010.
