Congratulations to Victoria Reichelt who is a finalist in STILL: National Still Life Award 2023 with her painting ‘Mont Blanc’. “Mont Blanc depicts a pile of 1970s computer paper precariously formed into a mountainous sculptural form. In the context of the landscape, the paper mountain stands in for the natural environment, where mountains of trees would be more commonly represented. The work suggests that a benefit in the move from the physical to the digital, is that fewer elements of nature are forfeited for the sake of human needs, while also recognizing the enduring environmental impact of our daily life.” Victoria Reichelt, 2023
