Congratulations to ex NCAT Folio Preparation student Jessie Imam who has just won the Nillumbik Prize 2015, for her work 'Diagram of Sentiment'. 

'Diagram of Sentiment' by Jessie Imam
The $5,000 first prize was announced by Prize Judge, Melinda Martin, Director of Linden New Art and presented by Nillumbik Shire Council Mayor Cr Helen Coleman at the exhibition opening in the Barn Gallery at Montsalvat.

After finishing at NCAT Folio Preparation, Jessie completed a Bachelor of Fine Arts (Photomedia) at Monash University in 2009. She has previously exhibited in group shows around Melbourne and in Launceston and has collaborative work showing internationally. Jessie’s work has been included in exhibitions including Aesthetic Positioning (Melb), Ambidextrous (Melb), Suspicious Minds (Launceston), Love, Art school & Death (Melb) and Cafe Nu (Melb).

Jessie's most recent works centre around themes of death, transition and traces. She takes a mythological approach and uses elements in her pieces to spark conversations surrounding truth, reality and a tension between memory, vitality and death. Although from a photographic background, Jessie’s practice also includes sculpture, installation, painting and the moving image.

Check out the exhibition at Monsalvat until 2nd August. In the meantime, check out Jessie's Facebook art page here: Jessie Imam Fine Art. Further information can be found at http://www.jessie-imam.com/
