MICHAEL SIMMS ANNOUNCED AS FINALIST IN ARCHIBALD 2023
A big congratulations to Michael Simms, who has been announced as a finalist in this year’s Archibald Prize with his portrait of the artist Zaachariaha Fielding. Simms reflects: “I met Zaachariaha early in 2020 and we've had a few portrait sittings over the years - most recently in January 2023, resulting in this portrait. I’m struck by Zaachariaha’s authenticity – which is warm, courageous, introspective, sensitive, and deeply engaged in the creative process.”
