I am very pleased to announce the selection of "Mountain Box Shard" for the final of The Threadneedle Prize, 2014.
From the website of the prize
Figurative art is more than ever at the forefront of contemporary art practice and is always a subject of debate. With many high profile art prizes tending towards conceptual and abstract works, The Threadneedle Prize deliberately sets out to examine Figurative Art Today, producing a comprehensive current survey.
Lewis McNaught, Director of Mall Galleries, who has overseen the Prize since its inception, adds: “The Threadneedle Prize exhibition gives a powerful voice to figurative art through a range of different subjects, techniques and mediums. This year’s shortlist of up and coming artists is taking the Prize to a new level of achievement. Visitors to the exhibition will also enjoy a selection of works by more established artists invited by guest curator Sacha Craddock. These complementary yet contrasting approaches to selection will reinforce the impact and influence that figurative art has within the context of contemporary art today.”
The final pieces can be viewed, voted on and purchased at Mall Galleries from 26th September to 11th October, 2014.
