We are thrilled to announce that Locust Jones has been nominated as a finalist for the Fishers Ghost Award with his light box piece ‘Southern Times’. In this work, Jones’ photograph of a bustling street in Palestine collides with his vivid drawing of a Black Lives Matter protest. Part of his 2020 body of work ‘Situation Room’, Jones layers text, image and light to create striking snapshots of global politics over the past 12 months. His style is both intensely personal and evocative of collective fears and desires.
The Fisher’s Ghost Art Award is an annual art prize inviting artists to submit works in a variety of artistic categories and mediums. This is the Award’s 58th year and coincides with Campbelltown’s annual Festival of Fisher’s Ghost, which is held over 10 days. The Festival itself dates back to 1956 and celebrates Australia’s most famous ghost – Frederick Fisher.
The award announcement will be made on October 30th.
