The MAX Indigenous Art Competition aimed to celebrate the quality and diversity of painting among Indigenous artists nationwide. Although this year marked the first for the MAX Indigenous Art Competition, we had an incredible array of submissions from all over Australia. The judging panel; Project Coordinator Holly Riding and National Indigenous Program Manager Robyn Golding, faced a difficult decision when entries closed on June 30, 2014 due to the extremely high standard of work received.

Winning artwork, Seven Sisters was submitted by Roslyn Sullivan from Kalgoorlie, WA. Roslyn created her work using the combination of a traditional yet contemporary colour palette forming an incredibly unique work. Roslyn’s work will be featured at NAIDOC week next week for full recognition, while her work will also star as the main inspiration behind future MAX Indigenous collateral. 

Shortly behind was People’s Choice award winner Allan McKenzie from NSW with Marshlands. Allan also adopted a similar technique utilising modern non-traditional colours of blues, purples and greens to represent the Rainbow Serpent dreamtime story. 

Unlike these works, Cheryl Davison received Honourable Mention for her innovative artwork, Little Doonooch (Owl). Cheryl incorporated traditional indigenous colours while creating a simplistic painting from afar, yet highly detailed work up close.   

We would like to thank all applicants who participated in the competition and those here at MAX who made it possible to run. We look forward to NAIDOC week and exhibiting Sullivan’s work on behalf of MAX Solutions. Keep a look out for the next MAX competition!
