Artist draws on work during the pandemic to win award

The Trinity Buoy Wharf drawing award is the UK’s most important open exhibition for drawing.  In 2020 they received 4272 entries for their annual drawing prize and we were delighted to hear that a Futures for Women beneficiary was awarded second prize.

The three paintings which caught the eye of the judges were individually entitled Pendant Alarm, Tea, and Teeth.  The pencil drawings document the artist’s role as a carer and support worker during the coronavirus pandemic, focusing on the relationships she formed with her clients. Drawn from memory while the artist travelled between shifts, the prize-winning drawings expressively capture moments of intimacy, tenderness, and companionship.

Futures for Women would like to pass on our own congratulations to the artist, who is now studying for a Masters in Art Psychotherapy.
