A selection of finalists’ portraits from the 2018 Adam Portraiture Award exhibition at the New Zealand Portrait Gallery, Wellington.
The Award promotes the best of contemporary portrait painting from established and emerging artists; and portraits range from abstract to realistic. The biennale award is generously sponsored by the Adam Foundation.
Auckland artist, Logan Moffat, a 21-year-old who graduated with a Bachelor of Fine Arts (hons) from Elam School of Fine Arts in 2017, is the 2018 winner of the $20,000 top prize - the youngest person in the 20-year history of the award to win first prize. His painting was selected from 300 entries by international judge Angus Trumble, Director of the National Portrait Gallery of Australia.
Moffat's Elam features two of his fellow third-year students, Jayden Plank and Harry Telfer, and was described by Trumble as a rumination upon the creative process. Marlborough artist, Caroline Della Porta’s, The Potter, Sara Scott, also features in the 40 works in this touring exhibition.
