The winner of the 2017 main prize (established artist) is Queensland-based painter Diena Georgetti; the winner of the emerging artist prize is Melbourne-based painter Kenny Pittock.
Georgetti was described by her gallerist Amanda Rowell as "a true artist's artist", and her work was described by one of the Prize judges, Justin Paton (curator of international art at the Art Gallery of NSW), as "strange and beautiful" and "clearly the work of someone with a head full of the history of painting".
Morton, who was not a judge, said he lives with one of her works, and that the winning work represents a "curious negotiation of the past – that's never sentimental or nostalgic".
Pittock's winning work, 'Fifty-two found shopping lists written by people who need milk' (2016), recreates in ceramic 52 discarded shopping lists he found in the milk section of the supermarket where he works.
