About

South Square Centre is pleased to select Bradford-born artist Nancy Haslam-Chance for this year's Joan Day Painting bursary. Nancy is interested in Bradford’s post-industrial landscape and the city has very much influenced the direction of her work, with some of her pieces featuring places such as Undercliffe Cemetery and Lister Mills. She explores forgotten industries; of workers feet, of mills and pits, as well as the friendships and anxieties of the time. The award is a tribute to Joan Day, a highly skilled painter who lived and worked in the West Yorkshire region for much of her life. It is an opportunity for the selected artist to make a new body of work using paint and present this as part of a debut solo exhibition in South Square’s main gallery.

 

Nancy studied Illustration at Glasgow School of Art and is currently undertaking The Drawing Year course at the Royal Drawing School. The artist was selected from an open call of high quality submissions, the selection panel included Judith Tucker (Painter and Senior Lecturer at University of Leeds), Rosie Freeman (Director of The Brick Box and South Square Board Member) as well as South Square staff members Alice Withers and Yvonne Carmichael.
