Anna Hoyle is the Winner of the 2022 National Works on Paper $20,000 major acquisitive award. NWOP is an award, a curated exhibition, a celebration of the materiality of paper, a showcase of the ambition and experimentation of artists, and a conduit for the Mornington Peninsula Regional Gallery to build their collection.
The judges said about the award-winning work: ‘Inspired by the artist’s interest in wordplay and cultural contexts related to self-help, advertising, the wellness industry and consumer culture, Anna Hoyle’s gridded series 1800BIOOSEKURE is a joyful celebration of the creative process and a wry, humorous take on the existential dramas of everyday life.’
National Works on Paper (NWOP) is one of the foremost art awards and exhibitions in the country, attracting Australia’s leading contemporary artists working with paper.
Close to 900 artists from across Australia submitted entries for NWOP 2022, with 78 finalists selected by the judging panel.
The 2022 National Works on Paper is on at MPRG until 27 November.
