Tom Harrison Wins Jerwood Drawing Prize

Tom Harrison, From Andrew's Flat, Singapore
Current Drawing Year student Tom Harrison has won this year's Jerwood Drawing Prize.

'My initial pull for the drawing was seeing all of this from an elevated position, an abstract pattern of the buildings jostling for space with the jungle becoming even more apparent.'

A total of 60 works by 58 artists were chosen from over 3072 submitted works for the Jerwood Drawing Prize exhibition by a panel comprising the artist Dexter Dalwood, artist/curator Salima Hashmi and art historian John-Paul Stonard.

The shortlist exhibition this year also includes alumni Mary Milner, Pia Bramley and Rosie Vohra.

The winning artworks are on display at Jerwood Space, London from September 16 – October 25 2015, followed by a tour to venues across the UK, including Cheltenham Art Gallery and Museum: The Wilson (November 21 2015 - January 31 2016), Sidney Cooper Gallery, Canterbury (February 11 - April 9 2016), and Falmouth Art Gallery (April 23 - June 25 2016).
