Jerwood Drawing Prize 2015: ‘Imminent: Storm Clouds’

Thrilled to be selected for the short list of the Jerwood Drawing Prize with one of my dark textural drawings.

A mix of charcoal and pastel with carborundum and glitter to give the depth through the texture. The series has a figurative and an emotional source.

It is also a personal response to a pervasive unease that I want to convey through the dark and ominous clouds.

Piece (on its way to the framers) that is short listed for the Jerwood drawing prize, private view 15th September and then open from the 16th for a month:
