Judge for 2021

Ivan Durrant

Described as the enfant terrible of Australian art, Ivan Durrant (b. 1947) is a leading exponent of photorealist painting as well as a sculptor, filmmaker, performance artist and writer. Durrant first achieved public notoriety in 1975 when he deposited the carcass of ‘Beverly the cow’ in the NGV forecourt with the intention to shock those who could be horrified at the death of an animal but also happy to eat steak for dinner.

Durrant’s career spans close to five decades. During this time he has produced a remarkable body of work. His most recent paintings have been dubbed ‘supraphotolism’, a term coined to describe a style of working that goes beyond ‘super-realism’ or photorealism’s accurate mimicking of the photograph.
