The Marmite Prize for Painting V

Highlanes gallery, Ireland  / 08 Jul 2016 – 10 Sep 2016
Block 336, London, UK  /  04 June – 01 Jul 2016


Thirty nine works from artists from Ireland, UK, the US and mainland Europe feature in this year’s exhibition, and were selected from over 1,200 entries from painters at all stages in their practice.

Originating in the UK, organised by painters for painters since 2006, the Marmite Prize for Painting is the only erratic, challenging and nomadic biennial open submission painting exhibition existing to promote excellence in contemporary painting. The Prize is entered into by the artists in the spirit of participation, and for the thrill of the exhibition. The ‘Marmite’ itself refers to the Old English term for a cooking pot, alluding to the mixing of diverse practices encouraged by the Prize, and also to the prize itself – a specially made interpretation of a ‘marmite’ which is donated by an artist.

The Marmite V exhibition features works by Albane Lamoril, Richard Baker, Sarah Ball, Anthony Banks, Juan Bolivar, Philip Booth, Eleanor Breeze, Hannah Brown, Jo Bruton, Michael Calver, Diane Chappalley, Emma Cousin, Billy Crosby, Chris Daniels, Amanda Doran, Tamara Dubnyckyj, Steven Gee, Max Gomes, John Greenwood, Mandy Hudson, Clare Jarrett, Sooim Jeong, Michael Johnson, Jessie Makinson, Lindsay Mapes, Kathryn Maple, José Batista Marques, Jo McGonigal, Sinéad Ní Mhaonaigh, Oliver Mulvihill, Helen O’Leary, Bernadette O’Toole, Selma Parlour, Alison Pilkington, Christiane Pooley, Sheila Rennick, Joan Sugrue, Suzy Willey, and Daniel Woolhouse.

Paris collages

Paris has all kinds of museums, attractions and history, but for me also the booksellers of old and vintage books, comic strips and old maps.
I met Christophe Broutechoux, a traditional bookseller known as the “bouquinistes”; he has a stand in the corner of Pont Neuf, near the Notre Dame cathedral, and is a specialist in the “bande dessinées”, the french word for comic books.
