Once again, Cambridge Studio Gallery (CSG) is celebrating another great year in the Melbourne art scene. Short and sweet, the Christmas Show is incorporating the CSG Portrait Prize first People’s Choice Award recipients.
Otto Boron and Michael Kemp were voted favourites out of 50 plus entries in the WHO are LOOKING at YOU? Competition. Their prize is to exhibit in the Christmas Show. Otto is a familiar face to CSG with a long standing history of exhibiting and success. Known for his gutsy textural painting style, Otto will be showing some of his most popular pieces.
While Michael Kemp is relatively new to the industry, he has had success in art prizes and has works in the Mornington Peninsula Regional Gallery and other private collections. His work is ethereal and questions the meaning of existence.
Amber-rose is exhibiting a series of exquisite pastel works that have to be seen to be believed. Her works depict contemporary, urban scenes with street art as the focus. Amber has recently been selected as a finalist in the Paul Guest Drawing prize at the Bendigo Art gallery.
Daniel Worth is an emerging contemporary artist with a unique and humorous approach to art. He is no stranger to experimentation and exploration of mediums. He sometimes can be found in Melbourne’s inner city working in chalk on the footpath. For the Christmas Show, Daniel will be exhibiting his Urban Ghosts series that are a unique combination of wood carving, painting and sculpture.
