Jerwood Drawing Prize 2016
Excited and honoured to have two of my drawings selected for this years Jerwood Drawing prize. Square and Rectangle take my obsessive mark making to the next level.
The Jerwood Drawing Prize is the largest and longest running annual open exhibition for drawing in the UK. Selected from original drawings, the Prize has established a reputation for its commitment to championing excellence, and to promoting and celebrating the breadth of contemporary drawing practice, this year including hand drawn, digital, moving image and sculptural works. The exhibition provides a platform to showcase the work of drawing practitioners, from student to established, and as a project helps to define a wider understanding of the role and value of drawing in creative practice.
61 works by 55 artists have been selected from 2,537 submissions from across the UK by artist Glenn Brown; Curator and Director, Kupferstich-Kabinett at Staatliche Kunstammlungen Dresden, Stephanie Buck; and Director, Modern Art Oxford, Paul Hobson.
