Young Masters @ Sphinx Fine Art
This year the exhibition forms the final stop of the highly successful Young Masters Tour 2013. The exhibition will be curated by Daisy McMullan, (MA Curating, Chelsea College of Art and Design), curator of the Young Masters Art Prize 2012.
Exhibiting artists will include last year’s winner, Lottie Davies, runner-up Georgia Dodson, and 2012 short- listed artists Derrick Santini, Charles Moxon, Fabiano Parisi, Christoph Steinmeyer, Nina Fowler, Jane Hoodless and Karina Chechik. Works by 2009 short- listed artists Charlotte Bracegirdle and Lluis Barba will also feature alongside selected artists, including Elise Ansel, Jamie Lumley, Aileen McEwan, Sun Ae Kim and Nicole Etienne.
The Young Masters Art Prize has a long standing relationship with Sphinx Fine Art, whose beautiful Old Master Gallery in Kensington Church Street has hosted exhibitions combining their stunning collection of Old Master pieces with the innovative, contemporary works of the Young Masters artists.
This inspiring show will juxtapose a diverse approach to the art of the past by global, emerging artists with works by well known Old Masters, including Turner, Brueghal, Hals and Teniers.
The Young Masters Art Prize is a unique, not-for-profit biennial competition open to international and UK-based artists who combine skill and innovation with awareness of the Old Masters and art of the past. It aims to give global recognition to artists in the early stages of their career.
A few years ago Derrick began experimenting with lenticular photographic works. These have taken off substantially in the last three years, with solo shows in London and Istanbul, as well as numerous group shows as far afield as New York, Miami and Brazil. His pieces have proven extremely popular with gallerists and collectors alike, as well as counting Adele and Jemima Khan as owners and fans of his work. Santini was shortlisted for the Young Masters Art Prize 2012 and was highly commended for technical excellence. He joins The Young Masters Tour for 2013.
