Danish artist Keld Moseholm was announced on 28th October as the recipient of The Balnaves Foundation Sculpture Prize of $60,000, the main prize at Sculpture by the Sea, Bondi 2010 and the most generous sculpture prize in NSW
The prize was awarded to Moseholm for his work mirroring 1995 at the launch of the 14th annual Sculpture by the Sea, Bondi in Mark's Park today by Hamish Balnaves, General Manager of The Balnaves Foundation. Moseholm is the second recipient of The Balnaves Foundation Sculpture Prize, after 91-year old artist May Barrie won the inaugural award at last year's Sculpture by the Sea, Bondi.
"A worthy winner" said Hamish Balnaves. "It is obvious that the quality in this year's exhibition is very high. We are happy to fund this prize and be part of this great exhibition".
Keld Moseholm was delighted with the win. Still in shock from the news he said "This is a complete surprise to me. I am very honoured, very privileged with the award and very honoured to be part of a public collection in Sydney. Our relationship to Australia is really good and this will build the connection between us even more."
I'll post an image once I find one or after I have seen the works.
