John Moores Painting Prize 2014

Unlike a few of my classmates I really do believe Rose Wylie deserved to win this prestigious award, although I can see the merit in the other shortlisted artists work, definitely the immense amount of skill behind the work (Juliette Losq and  Mandy Payne) and the beautiful and profound depth of thought behind the rest (Alesandro Raho and Rae Hicks). Despite this I feel Rose Wylie offered more in terms of uniqueness and personality, elements which are becoming increasingly hard to find in today’s artist community and therefore traits that I find even more essential in a winner.
