The Threadneedle Prize 2014 Shortlist
The six shortlisted artists are:
- Arts Commissioning Editor and Art Critic at The Times, Nancy Durrant;
- Internationally exhibited and collected sculptor, Kevin Francis Gray;
- Independent Advisor and Curator of the Hiscox Collection, Whitney Hintz; and
- Gallerist and Founder of Art Dubai, John Martin, who has two gallery spaces in London.
“This year’s shortlist highlights the talent of practicing artists who both find ongoing inspiration in the human form and the abstraction of the human form, as indeed have generations of artists before them. This year’s prize shows the need for the support of a timeless response – that of interpreting our artistic experiences in a manner based in representation.”Below you will find images of the work and the artists and my commentary on the work - as yet unseen in person.
However tomorrow night is the Awards Dinner to which I am invited - and I'm looking forward to hearing the announcement of who has won The Threadneedle Prize. My iPad will be going with me and you might even get a video!
