Jerwood Drawing Prize PV 2016

This years' Jerwood Drawing Prize exhibition is yet again a shining example that drawing is well and truly alive!


On a 35 degree hot September evening I attended the Private view, as I'm very proud to once again be selected to exhibit in this truly unique show, exclusive to the practice of contemporary drawing.


Walking through the exhibition as an exhibiting artist, I felt privileged to be amongst works that actively promote what drawing can be, not what it should be. From planks of wood that explored the contours of its material and needle and thread used as a pen to mark cloth, to the sublimely simple act of using ink on paper in a ritualistic and microscopic way. The show indulgently felt like opening up a shiny new tin of Quality Streets at Christmas! The variety (and yes, the quality) makes this a very exciting and very relevant show.
