Attic Scene with Grave Goods selected for Lynn Painter-Stainer Prize

Attic Scene with Grave Goods

Happy to report that Attic Scene with Grave Goods has been shortlisted for the Lynn Painter-Stainer Prize, and will be on show at the Mall Galleries in March.

A slightly uncharacteristic one-off, this painting was begun in my old studio during the chaos of moving house, and completed in the new one. As well as rounding off a trio of grave goods paintings. It is also a bit of an 'end of an era' event for me after 30 years turning the quirky, distorted-by-time Georgian particulars of the old attic studio into a personal and intuitively manipulable visual language.

The Lynn Painter-Stainers Prize was created in 2005 by the Worshipful Company of Painter-Stainers and the Lynn Foundation to encourage the very best creative representational painting and promote the skill of draughtsmanship. With prize money of £35,000, the Prize is one of the most prestigious awards to artists throughout the UK.

The exhibition runs from 5 – 17 March 2019 at the Mall Galleries, The Mall, London, SW1. Open 10am-5pm daily, free entry.
