Aesthetica Art Prize 2014
We had the great pleasure this year of shooting the set up and Private View of the Aesthetica Art Prize, held again in the gorgeous surroundings of York St Marys.
Aesthetica, the international arts and culture magazine organises the awards and all the great and good of the arts scene were there along with many of the international long and short listed artists.
German artist Sybille Neumeyer was announced as the winner of the Main Prize for the Aesthetica Art Prize 2014 at the exhibition preview on 3 April.
Her stunning light installation Song for the Last Queen (2013) is comprised of 7,614 bees – one eighth of the colony – that were collected from a naturally collapsed bee hive and placed as a rhythm of black spots in honey creating a silent score.
Rising star Harriet Lewars took home the Student Prize with her monumental sculpture Frustrum Super Planum Cum Filia Lyrae (2013) that explores the interface between art and music.
And as usual, we started and ended the night in 1331 bar, which is never a bad thing :o)
