Braddon Snape wins the 2022 Lake Art Prize

28 September 2022

Congratulations to Braddon Snape, winner of the Lake Art Prize at the Museum of Art And Culture, Lake Macquarie with his "Allusive Object" inflated stainless steel sculpture with black acrylic ellipse and custom light.

“There’s a special personal satisfaction [in winning] because I’m a Lake Macquarie-born person, so it kind of feels like people have finally recognised who I am in the place where I came from,"  Braddon Snape

The theme of the competition, the vessel: contained within and moving between, invited artists to explore literal and lateral translations of a vessel.   

Judge Brett Adlington said Snape’s Allusive Object stood out among a high calibre of artworks. “It was a very commanding piece,” Mr Adlington said. 

“It has a great play on light as the object is a dark space so it uses light to encompass an area that is bigger than itself and, for us, this really spoke about that theme of a vessel in a really unique way.”


Snape’s work was selected alongside 65 other finalists in the $25,000 Lake Art Prize, one of the richest acquisitive art prizes in regional NSW.


The exhibition is on show until Sunday 11 December 2022.
