The Emerge Awards, a UK-wide, open competition that champions emerging talent and diversity in the creative industries, have announced the three finalists in the art category.
They are as follows:
- Maxwell Rushton for Drawn Out (2013-2015), a work comprised of four 10-meter rolls of paper, each filled with four repeated lines. Drawn Out is made up of approximately ten million hand-drawn lines in total and was completed by the artist in isolation over the course of a year.
- Ian Kirkpatrick for A Graphic War (2015), a project commemorating the centenary of the First World War. Exploring the role of graphic design as a tool of both war and peace, these four large cardboard sculptures use packaging design to challenge romantic ideals of war and sacrifice.
- Emily Moore for Emily, a recent series of paintings looking back on an Icelandic adventure. Photographs, taken to record her travels and experiences were the starting point for the series of landscape-based works, which Moore created by working directly onto wooden panels, constructing the image in individual detailed layers whilst retaining elements of the natural wood beneath.
