We are delighted that Browse & Darby artist Sophie Charalambous has won the Jerwood Printmaking Today Prize for her monoprint Comings and Goings. Commenting on the selection, Anne Desmet RA, chair of the judging panel said:
“The scale of this monoprint was highly ambitious for a relative newcomer to printmaking. This coupled with its spontaneous energy and the theatricality of its composition made it stand out for the panel. We very much hope that winning this prize will encourage Sophie to enhance and develop her printmaking skills in exciting and unpredictable directions.”
The judging panel for the 2020 prize was chaired by Anne Desmet RA and included Leonie Bradley, artist and Editor Printmaking Today; Catherine Daunt, Hamish Parker Curator of Modern and Contemporary Graphic Art, British Museum; Philippa Hogan-Hern, Executive Director, Jerwood and Helen Rosslyn, Director, LOPF.
The Jerwood Printmaking Today Prize was introduced in 2019 as a new initiative in a tripartite partnership with the London Original Print Fair (LOPF) and Printmaking Today. Its focus is on identifying emerging artists who are excelling in the field of printmaking and demonstrating a deep understanding of the medium or a fresh approach to printmaking. Nominations are invited from exhibitors at the LOPF. For further information click here.
