Judges comment: ‘This artwork is pictorially bold and simple yet materially substantial enough to pique the interest of the viewer. Aesthetically, it can be placed within 20th Century modernist and formalist movements. The subject is enigmatic – it can be interpreted in diverse ways given a viewer’s cultural, sub-cultural, and personal experiences and frameworks. Therein lies its appeal.’
‘Cross’Erica used marbling and woodgraining techniques, and she made the ‘Cross’ by frottaging and scrappage. The high vis orange has a top glaze of Rose Dore oil.
