Latrobe Regional Gallery is pleased to announce that Nadine Lineham is the recipient of this year’s Dick Bishop Memorial Prize.

The Dick Bishop Memorial Prize is an ongoing recognition of Richard (Dick) Bishop’s (1929-2004) commitment to supporting emerging artists.

Latrobe City Council’s mayor, Councillor Darrell White, said that Nadine Lineham’s exhibition A Fall into Understanding, questioned what is it to live in a world of accelerating change.

"The works in her exhibition turn our attention to the idea of mass media circulation offering a prescription for life. It prompts the viewer to ponder the confusion and intrigue relating to our existence.

"Ms Lineham is a local artist who lives in Myrtlebank. She studied Visual Arts at the University of Melbourne and is actively exhibiting with Australian art institutions, which champion visual thinking. We extend our sincerest congratulations to Ms Lineham and we are delighted that her work will be displayed in the Latrobe Regional Gallery," Cr White said.

Lineham aims to manipulate familiar images that carry meaning, and capture the paradox that can emerge, Her paintings examine what may lie beneath the calm exterior – where a charming, anxious social identity lurks.

Co-opting images from her own photography, found imagery from contemporary media and inanimate objects, Lineham’s paintings illuminate our internal dialogue and offer figures in environments that range from the menacing and ominous to empty voids.

"The artist hopes that her exhibition will invoke the viewer to participate emotionally in the work," Cr White concluded.

A Fall into Understanding will be on display from 1 December 2018 to 27 January 2019 The official opening event will be held on Saturday 1 December from 1 to 3pm, and everyone is welcome to attend. Please RSVP by Wednesday 28 November, by phone 5128 5700 or email
