Congratulations to Victoria Reichelt who is a finalist in the Portia Geach Memorial Award for her work 'Self Portrait as a Parent, 2021'.
"Self Portrait as Parent speaks to my own personal experience of parent and painter, and in doing so to the larger history of woman artists. In a deeply familiar moment to many parents of young children, the mother struggles with a toddler fishing through her handbag. There is a tender exhaustion for mother and child, with backs turned to the work that continues in the studio and finds its home in the gallery. Life and art go on." Reichelt.
