The wynne prize
Transcript of The wynne prize
The Wynne Prize is awarded every year to the artist of 'the best landscape painting of Australian scenery in oils or watercolours or for the best example of figure sculpture by Australian artists’.
How to enter
The prize of the Wynne competition is $50,000.
The most worthy winner;
When I look at this painting I see a cliff of rocks overlooking the ocean and the vastness beyond.
It makes me feel calm, the water is gently washing up against the rocks and the swell is not too rough.
This artwork reminds me of over looking the ocean during a sunset, the water is calm and it just looks beautiful. It conjures up imagery, it really makes you feel as if you were actually by the beach.
The least worthy winner
The art work that I believe is the least worthy of the Wynne prize is 'The River Is Calm' by Joanne Currie Nalingu.
Art Gallery of NSW, 2015.

The prize was established by Richard Wynne. The prize was established following a bequest in his will when he died in 1895. The first Wynne prize was first awarded to Walter Withers in 1897 for his artwork 'The Storm'.

Origins of the Wynne prize
This open competition is judged by certain people working for the Art Gallery of NSW. Finalists are displayed in an exhibition held at the Gallery. Many paintings have become quite well known and are sometimes even become famous icons of art.

More Information on the Wynne prize

The prize is awarded to the best landscape painting of Australian scenery in oils or watercolours or to the best example of figure sculpture by Australian artists completed during the 12 months time limit.
The artist must have been a resident in Australia for a certain period and in any year, a competitor may enter one work only. This does not prevent the artist entering other works in other competitions such as the Sulman or Archibald Prizes.
Requirements of entering
The item of work;
•Must NOT exceed the size limit of 90,000 square cm (eg 3 × 3 m, 1.5 × 6 m). Sculptures must NOT exceed 3 m in height, 2 square m in area or 1000kg in weight. Dimensions apply to the actual work of art, not the mounting or framing. Exhibition wall height is 3.4 m, floor to ceiling.
•May be a multi-panel work as long as the overall dimensions do not exceed the size limit above.
•May be a landscape painting in oil, watercolour, acrylic or mixed media. Seascapes and cityscapes are acceptable.
•May be a figure sculpture in stone, metal, wood or mixed media. The work may be abstracted, but at the same time clearly derived from a figurative source, human or animal.
I believe the most worthy winner of the Wynne prize was the 2006 winner 'The Gap' by John Beard.
John Beard, Aberdare, 1943
The Gap, 2005-2006, oil and wax on canvas
original size unkown
Art gallery or NSW, Sydney
This painting is more organic than geometric. The horizon, mountains and distant ocean are organic. They are softly painted, natural looking and seem to look relaxed. In the foreground, the cliff edge and crashing waves look geometric,they are crisp and precise, but it still has a slight organic tone to it.
There is simulated texture in the waves crashing against the rocks and the cliff edge that makes it look extremely realistic.
There is light tone to this image. There is a bit of a tint to the painting that makes it look slightly overcast, perhaps after or before a storm.
This artwork is expertly crafted using oil and wax on canvas board. There are many colours in this artwork. John Beard used cool primary colours and some secondary colours to increase the illusion of depth, the horison seems to recede making it seem further away.
The colours make it look as if it is late in the afternoon while the white tints still make it seem illuminated.
(nore precise, crisp and sharp)
(Softer, relaxed, curved or rounded)
Examples of Forms
This artwork was made in 2005-2006 by John Beard in Aberdare, Australia.
Some pretty huge things happened in 2006 that helped shape Australia's culture, Steve Irwin passed away, the Socceroos were in the world cup and Kevin Rudd became the opposition leader before leading the labour party into government.
There were no major art movements in that time, and its still just modern art styles.

Synthetic paint on Belgian linen,
Coo-ee aboriginal art gallery
In this painting I hardly see a river, as Joanne intended, but a few random lines. I think that this artwork is not put together very well. This painting reminds me of something a young child would do, I just see abstract lines.
Structurally, the artwork is not great. The lines in the painting are scarce in the foreground but there is more in the background to create depth and make it seem as if you were looking out over a river.
But there is no texture or tone in this artwork.
The colours in this artwork are white and red. So it uses a primary colour.
'The River is Calm' is a organic painting. The lines are soft and not precise or crisp.
Joanne is an Aboriginal woman who has lived her entire life in Australia. Her paintings depict small sections of the aboriginal culture through colour and style.
In 2008 kevin Rudd apologised to the Aboriginal for the stolen generation and I think this is an important thing to state because Joanne is an aboriginal painter.
But other than that there were some pretty huge things that definitely altered Australia's day-to-day life, brand new airplanes, first being flown commercially and the release of the first Apple iPhone.
