Imogen Taylor, 'Refusal to Yield', 2018

Judges Linda Tyler, Mark Braunias and Joyce Campbell described the work as combining references to the Bauhaus, Cubist and Modernist movements with assured handling of colour and composition: ‘It made for a bold, memorable and deeply informed painting.’ The Award Winners and Travelling Finalists exhibition is at Pah Homestead until November and will then tour to Porirua, Nelson, Christchurch and Morrinsville.
