Join us to celebrate the launch of their new screenprint editions, created in the Jealous Print Studio during their prize-winning residency.
Awarded annually to a select number of MA graduates from London’s major colleges, the Jealous Prize is an all-expenses-paid residency at Jealous Print Studio, London. The full portfolio was placed into the V&A’s Permanent Print Collection in 2013, who continue to collect the new editions produced each year.
Chosen by the Director, Gallery Manager and Studio Manager, the winners work with our experienced studio team to create a limited edition screenprint or multiple which is then launched to an international audience alongside exhibitions in our two galleries.
Each year, the Jealous Prize portfolio is added to a growing archive that forms part of the Victoria and Albert Museum’s permanent print collection. Gill Saunders, Senior Curator for Prints at the V&A, visited the Jealous Studio in 2013 and spoke of how delighted she was to receive such a diverse and important collection of work from a selection of the country’s best emerging talent. In 2014, Saatchi Gallery dedicated a month-long exhibition to the Jealous Prize in their Prints and Editions department.
The prize is now in it’s seventh year and has always sought to reflect shifting concerns of MA Graduates at an important stage in their career. Previous winners include Adam Dix who has also been recognised by the Future Map and Catlin Art Prize; Ann-Marie James who has since been awarded the Derek Hill Foundation Scholarship at The British School Rome, a residency at Headspace in Japan and is represented by Karsten Schubert Gallery; Charlie Billingham whose work has been exhibited at the Royal Academy and Saatchi Gallery; and Erica Donovan whose work includes a commission to transform The Artist’s Pavilion at the 55th Venice Biennale.
In this exclusive launch of the new editions of 2017 winners, we will also take the chance to reflect back on some of our most exciting previous winners from the past seven years.
AROUT THE WINNERS
Clare Price is a painter living and working in London. She studied BA Painting at Central St. Martins and graduated from Fine Art MFA at Goldsmiths in 2016. Her work has been shown nationally and internationally including solo shows at Studio 1.1, Charlie Dutton Gallery and the Acme Project Space. She has exhibited as part of numerous group shows including the Marmite Prize for painting, What Cannot be Contained at Smiths Row and is due to show as part of "Glossary" a survey of emerging painters later this year. In 2014 she was the recipient of the Acme Jessica Wilkes Award and won the Student Prize at the Oriel Davies Painting Open in 2016.
Grizelda Kitching has just completed a MA in Visual Arts- Printmaking at Camberwelll and currently based in Peckham. Her work utilises both traditional and contemporary processes such as screenprinting, mono print, painting and collage alongside digital form.
The delicate use of digital input ensures the original hand-rendered, textural qualities and use of colour remain the focal point of her designs. Currently her focus is on painterly, bright and gestural large scale designs that have the potential to act as wallpaper drops and panels.
Grizelda’s practice primarily involves paper based printmaking process led work. Typically using photography to capture images as a starting point, then develop a response to the original imagery through colour and mark making. The development continues through disruption and distortion and change of scale, developing an abstract, sometimes spontaneous mark through the use of mono screen print.
Grizelda recently won an Arts Thread competition to have her work showcased at The WGSN Future Awards in London.
'Botanical Series' involves a selection of originally screen printed images, with added mono print abstract mark making - a response to her original botanical photography.
Margaux Valengin was born in 1992 and raised in a small town of the north of France. At the age of 18 she moved to Paris for an introductory year of study in art and design. At the time she thought she wanted to be a furniture designer until she realised that what she actually wanted to do was to paint. She decided to move to Brussels where she received a BA in painting from La Cambre and then went on to complete her Masters in London at the Royal College of Art. She has now just settled in her new studio in New York City.
