Quadrant wishes to congratulate Aldo Bellemo on his work 'Lost' which won Best in Show at the annual 2017 Emerald Art Exhibition.
Judge's comments on the work:
"The geometrics of this painting simplifies the lack of place markers in the landscape to guide the traveller. The perspective tricks give a sense of being at the subject's height, even though we are viewing her at an entirely different height. It helps us empathise with her predicament. She seems not only 'lost' in place but also time...The architecture giving no hint as to new, old, modern or traditional eras... a bit like the painting."
Aldo will be having an exhibition at Quadrant Gallery in October 2018.
