Grace Removals has selected Jacob Errey of St Francis De Sales Regional College in Leeton, New South Wales, as the winner of the 2014 GFA ARTEXPRESS Prize for his photomedia work titled ‘Fundamental associations’.
Jacob’s work – a collection of photographs taken in 2013 during his final year at school – is an exploration and commentary on social psychology, juxtaposing notions of individuality and uniformity, and presenting ideas about how self-identity and attitudes are formed.
ARTEXPRESS is an annual series of exhibitions of exemplary artworks created by New South Wales visual arts students for the Higher School Certificate examination.
Grace has been supporting the GFA ARTEXPRESS Prize since 1997, and this year has donated a $250 Ted’s Camera voucher to Jacob, in recognition of his inspiring work.
The collection is currently being displayed at the Art Gallery of NSW, and will go on tour to 11 different venues across the state.
Grace is the official ARTEXPRESS Carrier for 2014 — responsible for carrying all the artworks from venue to venue.
