Week 2 of the Archibull Prize judging saw Wendy travel from the Central Coast to the Blue Mountains then to Melbourne and then to the eastern suburbs of Sydney.
Wendy’s visit north attracted great interest from the media that included print, radio and TV ( I will endeavour to get copies to add to this blog)
First off the mark was Northlakes High School where Wendy and I were highly entertained by the Archie team who designed and created Miss Jay Jay
This is what Wendy had to say about Miss Jay Jay
To anyone who studies art, “Miss Jay Jay” has many elements that should be familiar.
Her appropriated artworks are instantly recognisable, and all work together to tell her clever story. Chagall, Picasso, Arkley, Warhol and Jeffrey Smart provide a vibrant canvas to showcase the beef industry. Her visual appeal and her connection to her community are shouted to the viewer, and her layers of complexity shine.
