Twin Peaks

“Well it’s interesting that both John (Reynolds) and Peter (Robinson) have been nominated twice, and you have to wonder. They’re on such a roll in their practice at the moment, if they keep working at this level will future judges keep putting them back in as well. This is the 4th Walters, so we’re just starting to see patterns arise. So it will be very interesting if it is the same people at the top of their game that start to dominate, or if these artists have peaks and troughs in their careers and Peter and John are both at a real peak at the moment.”
Andrew Clifford, Walters Prize shortlist selector, discussing the competition on The Arts on Sunday. You can hear the rest here.
