Winner of Stan and Maureen Duke Gold Coast Art Prize Announced

This year’s winner of the Stan and Maureen Duke Gold Coast Art Prize for 2009 is Christopher Jones, forty-one, with his work the liver is the bucket kicked the rabbit, 2008, a synthetic polymer on canvas.

This year’s judge, Andrew Frost, presenter of the Art Life on ABC1 and a contributor to Sunday Arts said of the work: "Christopher Jones’s painting . . . is a direct call to the unconscious, scrambling memories of Warner Bros. cartoons—from where I think part of the text is taken.”

He said he was “very much taken” with the painting’s humor, its bold and direct address “and the sharp, clean edges of its execution.”
