2021 Shortlisted Artists 

Elise Mendelle

Elise Mendelle has created her highly relevant Social Distancing series to capture our new normal when 2 metres apart is the only way we can interact. The pieces explore the feelings of separation and isolation we are experiencing in our current times. The images work very powerfully as a contemporary commentary, with a reductive style that recognises the distance and alienation we all feel right now. They are a mark of history and a keepsake of this period in time that has changed our world.

Chan Suk On 

My artwork is“Art Manual”, I used an expired camera manual to create a new life. Does art need to be explained? I picked up the sundries in the room. Time passed, the thick camera manual was outdated, and the camera model was constantly updated. People always chase the updated model. Everything can be changed. I tried to fold different sculptural forms. The texts were about photography randomly distributed. It is a poetic process.

Ann Palmer 

Ann Palmer paints seascapes in oil on hand prepared canvas, using a brush and palette knife, in her studio in Rochester, Kent, from her Plein air paintings from the beach in Whitstable, Kent, her sketches and photographs. She is inspired by seashores in Kent and Cornwall, standing on the pebbly beach watching the tide ebb and flow, the morning mist across the Swale, the light on the horizon, the clouds coming in from the west over London, and the light out to sea to the north and east. The low tide exposes sandbanks, pebbles, seafood for the gulls to seek.
