Self Portrait Prize 2021: longlist exhibition

I’m very happy to hear that my ink drawing has been long listed for the Ruth Borchard Self Portrait Prize, and will be part of an online exhibition hosted by London gallery Piano Nobile and Artsy, selected by a panel including Will Gompertz and Victoria Miro. The letter of confirmation was particularly satisfying to receive:

“From over 2000 entries your work has been identified as an outstanding contribution to the self-portrait genre and longlisted. With so many outstanding works submitted to the 2021 prize this is a huge achievement.”

The exhibitions opens on 14th May, here

Ruth Borchard Self-Portrait Prize

 

The Ruth Borchard Self Portrait Prize exhibition opened on 24th May, at an absolutely packed Piano Nobile Gallery at  King’s Place, London. My ink drawing ‘Ready for a Change Now’ was long listed from over 1000 entries. Ruth Borchard was a writer who came to the UK as a Jewish refugee from Germany in 1938. She collected 100 self-portraits by British artists, and the biennial prize celebrates her collection.

Sadly didn’t win the £10K prize this time, but it was fantastic to be there for the opening, and see my work exhibited alongside Eileen Cooper, Julian Opie …and Tracey Emin in the crowd too!
