CONGRATULATIONS: Martyn Harris
Winner of - The Smallwood Architects Prize for Contextual Portraiture
for his portrait entitled ‘Paul’s Emporium’.
Club Secretary and TAY resident artist Martyn Harris created the portrait of Paul Beasley sitting in his antiques and reclamation emporium surrounded by memorabilia, including a picture of Paul’s grandfather, Toby jug, washing mangle and wall mirror, among other items people will remember.
The Smallwood Architects prize is awarded for a portrait in which architecture or interior features play an important part in the narrative.
Judges look for the setting of the portrait to enhance the human subject, creating energy and a sense of place, and perhaps giving an insight into the subject’s life. Martyn’s portrait does just that!
Smallwood Architects are passionate about creating beautiful environments for their clients and are highly professional in every aspect of their work.
'Martyn'.... CONGRATULATIONS on behalf of everyone at The Art Yard and your many friends and associates.
