Jerwood Encounters: 3-Phase is a new artist development collaboration between
Eastside Projects (Birmingham), g39 (Cardiff), and Jerwood Charitable Foundation, through its London based gallery programme Jerwood Visual Arts. 3-Phase offers two early career artists the opportunity to make new work that will be exhibited through a year long programme of exhibitions across the collaborating galleries.
Following their solo shows at Eastside Projects the artists will present a joint exhibition as part of the Jerwood Visual Arts programme in London in May 2015 and solo shows with g39, Cardiff in November 2015.
Kelly Best’s practice is rooted in drawing but deals with sculptural concerns by thinking past the constraints of the edge of the paper and drawing directly onto the wall and floor. Interested in illusion and our understanding of an image or space she is particularly drawn to form, line, colour and void and the interrelationships between them. Kelly was selected from g39’s WARP network and is also a member of ESP.

Georgie Grace’s work sits somewhere between the still and moving image. Her interest in the slippery qualities of digital reading and the effect of constantly shifting surfaces on screen encompasses questions of speed, meaning, duration and modes of attention. Georgie was selected from the ESP membership, which she joined in October 2012.
