Ruth Borchard Self-Portrait Prize

Remembered; a self portrait, Laura Hudson granite, pigment and oil on wood panel [26x30cm] 2017

Remembered; a self portrait has been Selected for the Ruth Borchard Self-Portrait Prize 2017. Painted from memory, first with granite and then pigment, the portrait embodies the picture I have of myself. The image found inside the head, when called to express its external image, mixes deep seated notions of self with those projected onto us by others.

The fourth edition of the biennial Ruth Borchard Prize features 120 works by British and Irish artists aiming to showcase the very best of contemporary self-portraiture.
