PPC SCULPTOR AWARDS (article first published : 2004-10-22)

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.

Winner of the Best Sculpture on Exhibition was Nico Prinsloo for his work entitled Lunch Time. Prinsloo is a second year Fine Arts student at Tshwane University of Technology.

Lunch Time keeps the viewer guessing as it leaves a considerable amount to the imagination. There are no figures in this piece, just strategically suspended hands and caps encircling a lunchbox and brazier on the ground. It is open to personal interpretation and the suspension cables create an air of tension.
