Emily Moore has been named the winner of the Griffin Art Prize 2013 People’s Choice Award. The Prize comprises two suitcases of art materials supplied by the prize sponsors, Liquitex and Winsor and Newton.
Emily Moore is drawn to mountainous, desolate landscapes as well as the geometric shapes found in man made structures. Her work explores the tension between these conflicting themes. She uses a range of media including painting, photography, printmaking and installation. Emily has already exhibited in Edinburgh, London and Boston and recently won both the Artspace2let Prize, in 2013 and the Royal Scottish Academy Keith Prize in 2012.
Matthew Gibson, Director of the Griffin Art Prize, says:
“Edinburgh based mixed media painter Emily Moore has won the People’s Choice prize at the Griffin Art Prize. Emily was the clear favourite amongst those who voted in the gallery ballot box and online. This is the first year of the People’s prize and Emily will receive a specially designed suitcase of Liquitex products and a suitcase of Winsor & Newton products. The gallery is delighted that Emily has won as this is her first major exhibition since graduating from Edinburgh College of Art last June with a first class degree.”
Emily Moore, Winner of the Griffin Art Prize People’s Choice Award, says:
"I was surprised and delighted to learn that I had won the People's Choice Award. As an artist it is encouraging to know that people enjoy looking at my work. These materials will allow me to take my art further, to create more work to build my career." [for sign off]
