Congratulations to Lachlan Petras. PICA announced the 2012 winner of the $35,000 Dr Harold Schenberg Art Prize.
Lachlan Petras, a recent Bachelor of Fine Arts graduate from Monash University (VIC), won for his work Aggregate, a video projection onto a concave sculptural object made up of over 300 plywood facets.
"Lachlan Petras' Aggregate, a fresh, intelligent, ambitious and refined work that lead us to believe that this graduate had the capacity to significantly further their career as an artist". PICA Director Amy Barrett-Lennard.
The Dr Harold Schenberg Art Prize is awarded each year to one artist, enabling them to invest in the development of their practice through travel, research or production support.
The exhibition is at the Perth Institute of Contemporary Arts until the10th of June.
