Congratulations to Zaachariaha Fielding who has been announced as winner of the Ramsay Art Prize 2023 People’s Choice with his monumental suite of works ‘Wonder Drug’.
A suite of sixteen works on cardboard, Fielding refers to his winning work as gremlins; a download of emotion, an outpouring.
They represent the battling voices, internal and external, of flattery and insult, pleasure and pain. Importantly, he embraces these voices as an opportunity to learn and develop, by understanding how to navigate these opposites, the universal pushes and pulls of life.
The People’s Choice is a prize selected by public vote from the 27 Ramsay Art Prize finalists.
The Ramsay Art Prize 2023 exhibition is open until Sunday 27 August.
