I was thrilled to win the Barfoot & Thompson Award a couple of weeks back, thanks to Glaister Ennor and OREX Gallery. The judges were John Daly-Peoples and Rex Armstrong. Daly-Peoples was very perseptive about my work, which was most refreshing after years of being asked what my work is 'about'.
Unfortunately on the gallery website the reproduction of my work isn't so great, but the other winners' work looks good.

This photograph is part of It's a Draw, currently hanging at Artstation until the end of Saturday. Unfortunately my name is misspelt in all promotional material, and this seemed unable to be altered. I had a prize giving to attend the same night as the Artstation opening, so I perhaps paid this mistake less heed than I should have.
Paul Pachter folded the image for the exhibition, and I will post a photograph of this sometime next week.
