CONCRETE SCULPTOR AWARDS (article first published : 2004-10-7)

The 2004 PPC Cement Young Concrete Sculptor Awards has been lauded as the biggest in the 13-year history of this prestigious event. The organisers received a total of 62 works; double the entries received in 2003 with a number of them coming from Grahamstown, Stellenbosch and the Limpopo Province.

Prize money of R10,000 was awarded to the winner of each category: Best Sculpture on Exhibition and Technical Excellence in Concrete Sculpture. The runners up in each category received R5,000, bringing the total prize money to R30,000. There were no winners from KwaZulu-Natal.

Winner of the Best Sculpture on Exhibition was Nico Prinsloo, second year Fine Arts student at the Tshwane University of Technology, for his work entitled Lunch Time. Runner-up in this category was an outstanding work entered by Phanuel Marka Mabaso for Reptiles Collector. Currently studying at the Open Window School of Visual Communication, Phanuel is a promising artist from Limpopo with no previous formal art training.

The winner of the Technical Excellence in Concrete Sculpture category was Ruhan Janse van Vuuren for his work which depicts an ageing man. Runner up in this category was Petra Erasmus, a second year Fine Arts student at the University of Pretoria, for her two entries, Audiovisual and Ironed.

Merit Awards were awarded to second year University of Pretoria fine arts student Ilse Nel; third year fine arts student at Tshwane University of Technology Liza Claassen; Kenau Botha, a BA (Fine Arts) from the University of Pretoria and Mavhungoo Robert Ramavhale.

All these works are on exhibition until October 14 at the Association of Arts Pretoria, 173 Mackie Street, New Muckleneuk.
