February 2011: Craig MacDonald was awarded the Montalto Sculpture Prize 2011. MacDonald received the $20,000 award ahead of a strong field of other significant recognised Australian sculptors and will now work toward creating new works for other major sculpture prizes in 2011.
MacDonald, who is represented by Kick Gallery and had his debut exhibition Rocket Science in November 2010, will exhibit at Kick again in 2011 from September 20 – October 8. Editions of works from Rocket Science are currently available and can viewed at www.kickgallery.com/craig-macdonald/works
The winning work ‘Witness’ is described by Montalto as “‘Hovering just above the surface of the ground, Witness appears as if from another time – aged and totem like, its presence and movement is a reminder that time is not static and what has been seen before can be witnessed again”
