PATRICK DOHERTY A FINALIST IN THE 2013 FREMANTLE PRINT AWARD

Following the inclusion of his large-scale painting, Irrational Indecisions, in the prestigious PICA Salon earlier this year, Venn represented artist Patrick Doherty has been selected as a finalist in the 38th annual Fremantle Arts Centre Print Award.

This month, the Western Australian artist will exhibit a new triptych of etchings on paper as a part of the country’s premier print making award and exhibition.

His new work, The Narcissist, sees Doherty explore Australia’s history and suggests that contemporary Australian society continues to maintain structures of control and greed over others to obtain personal power. 

The winner of the $15 000 Acquisitive Prize will be announced at the opening event this Friday 20 September, 6:30pm, at the Fremantle Arts Centre.
