Peter Boggs won Australia’s most esteemed drawing prize, the Kedumba Drawing Award, in late October. He was selected from a field of 24 contemporary artists to win the invitation-only award, which is now in its 15th year. Boggs has also been invited to show his Boboli Gardens series at the annual Maggio Musicale Fiorentino festival in Florence next year.

The subjects are in the main simple forms and careful arrangements, invested with mystery, silence and hopefully some poetry, and out of that with luck, comes a sense of quiet introspection and contemplation.”
