AboutPaul Huxley RA, Callum Innes and Vanessa Jackson curate a review of emerging painting practice in the UK.
The twenty-four talented emerging artists who have been selected to take part in the fourth and final Jerwood Contemporary Painters include:
Neil Clements, Stewart Cliff, Natasha Conway, Kevin Cosgrove, James Ferris, Lotte Gertz, Nick Goss, Tommy Grace, Charlie Hammond, Iain Hetherington, Thomas Hylander, Ellen Macdonald, Jill Mason, Lucy Kumara Moore, Jack Newling, J.A. Nicholls, Ben Pritchard, James Ryan, Daniel Sinsel, David Small, Lucy Stein, Shaan Syed, Mimei Thompson and Hanneline Visnes.
This innovative and diverse exhibition provides a unique opportunity for emerging artists at a particular stage in their development, between student and recognised artist. The exhibition supports imaginative and vibrant practice in contemporary painting by encouraging young artists during what can be their most creative period. Each of the participating artists, who must have graduated since 2000, receives an equal share of £30,000 to support them at this critical point in their careers. This fee is unusual to other prizes as it rewards every artist in the show.
