Archibald Prize Finalist Camellia Morris


—Speaker I want to congratulate Camellia Morris, a local gallery owner in Mosman, for being named as a finalist in the esteemed Archibald Prize. Camellia is a self-taught artist, having taken up painting after a career in accounting. This is her first time as an Archibald finalist. Her subject is Anthony Field, affectionately known as the "Blue Wiggle", one of the founding members of the Australian Children's Television hit. In 2022, Camellia's portrait of Purple Wiggle, Jeff, titled 'Sleeping on the Job' was selected for the Salon des Refuses. Now, Camellia's portrait of Anthony, 'Wild Wild Wiggle', is set to make waves at this year's Archibald Prize Exhibition. The exhibition kicks off this Saturday at the Art Gallery of New South Wales. Congratulations Camellia on your fantastic achievement.
