CATEGORY PRIZES

To ensure every genre of art is appreciated equally, we are also running 6 Category Prizes. Upon entering, artists must tag their work the most appropriate subject matter. 

Jackson's will choose one winner from each category so that all longlisted works can be judged against works with similar subject matter, alongside being considered for the other prizes. All 6 category prize winners will win £500 and will automatically be placed in the shortlist.

UNTITLED BY ODILIA SUANZES

 

‘Untitled’
Oxide pigment in canvas
100 X 80 X 4 cm
Odilia Suanzes

‘I imbue my personal narratives, feelings and experiences in to the lines and forms of my work. Avoiding imagery which falls in to universal semiotics in an attempt to illustrate how I feel, rather than what I see. The material process of making is an integral to my practice, it is enigmatic and unpredictable, I make a connection between the emotions and the intellect. I experiment with a variety of materials which break the boundaries of drawing and painting, mixing watercolours, ink, pencil, charcoal, oil and I make my own pigments from found natural materials rocks, leaves, and blood on sealed canvas and paper. I tend to emulsify these materials layering them in veils of semi-transparent washes, making characteristic fragile organic shapes, creating depth and volume in the abstract images.'
