Chris Beetles Gallery Prize for Figurative Art
Hermione at Home
£2,500 for a non-member artist. Selected by Chris Beetles of Chris Beetles Gallery, St James's, London.
Chris Beetles, Director, Chris Beetles Gallery:
"I had not been aware of the work of Lyn Gray before and on looking over her profile online find that my choice is not serendipitous. She has a lively and spontaneous way with paint and stimulates consistently one’s imagination by investing her subjects with distinct personalities.
'Hermione at Home’ is an artwork handled with dash and panache and skilfully rendered form. Lyn Gray has captured an element of personality in her sitter which arrests attention.
The artist shows us that Hermione is an old lady comfortable in herself and whose direct gaze interests and charms us. She is an enduring and strong image for our difficult times.”
