Belem Lett has been awarded Highly Commended in 2016 Paddington Art Prize with Dorrigo, oil on aluminium composite panel, 163 x 122 cm. The national acquisitive prize is awarded to a painting inspired by the Australian landscape. In its 13th year, the judging panel was made up of artists Wendy Sharpe and Craig Waddell as well as head curator of The Art Gallery of NSW, Wayne Tunnicliffe.
Lett’s entry references the Dorrigo rainforest: “Growing up on the mid-north coast around Bellingen and Urunga, I remember frequently going up Dorrigo mountain with my family. We would go on walks through Dorrigo rainforest which was thick with strangler fig vines. The hanging looping string like vines winding there way through the forest have really stuck with me.”
