Inglis Equine Art Prize Won By Victorian Artist
Victorian water colour artist Jason Roberts has claimed the 2013 Inglis Equine Art Prize for his work titled 'Valyra Passes Beauty Parlour at Chantilly'. The winners were announced at a gala event on Tuesday evening at Inglis' Sydney headquarters in Randwick with Roberts collecting first prize money of $15,000. This year's theme was 'All Things Thoroughbred' and was judged by Arthur Inglis, equine artist Alister Simpson, and Archibald Prize winner, Frank Giacco. Simpson commented, "Jason's work depicts the beautiful architectural lines of the Great Stables at Chantilly, France, which are cleverly contrasted with the two horses in the foreground in different strides of their gallop. In so doing he has beautifully balanced the subjects with neither overpowering the other." The winner was chosen from 110 entries from around the world which was reduced to 30 finalist works of art representing 29 artists.
