Glover Prize Winner – Pedder Prime Cuts

Congratulations to Piers Greville, who has won the prestigious Glover prize for his contemporary work and reflection on the Lake Pedder impoundment. His piece captures the sad reality of the loss of original Pedder.

Of his work, Greville commented; “Canoeing on Lake Pedder in 2017 in the expanse of dark water, the almost black glassy depths and mountains held me in their beauty. A feeling of being absent from human clutter and noise settled on me, but the sudden recollection that this lake is a dam, tipped everything I was thinking on its side.”

Judge Barry Keldoulis shares that Greville “captured the idea of the landscape being seen as a commodity to be consumed by human kind.” Read more at: https://www.johnglover.com.au/exhibitions/winners/glover
