Dagmar Cyrulla and David Fairbairn both winners in the Kedumba Drawing Award 2009

Congratulations to both Dagmar Cyrulla and David Fairbairn who were both selected as winners for the 20th Annual Kedumba Drawing Award 2009.

Artist Euan Macleod judged this premier award for contemporary Australian drawing, and had these comments about David and Dagmar’s works:

“David Fairbairn: these two are stand out works. They stood out initially and held on when I returned after a short break. They didn’t lose anything and I like the fantastic investigation of forms in space almost illustrating the process of death and decay. I have selected D.G. No 6.

Dagmar Cyrulla: Both her works have a beautiful intimacy in terms of scale and subject matter. Although both drawings use different materials there is a consistency in the mood attained. Self Portrait is my selection.”
