Work By Jamie Coreth Selected for BP Portrait Award 2020
29th April 2020
Huge congratulations to QEST Garfield Weston Foundation Scholar Jamie Coreth whose portrait of Fatima Duke-Pratt has been selected for the BP Portrait Award exhibition at the National Portrait Gallery. Selected from 1,981 entries by artists from 69 countries around the world, the BP Portrait Award 2020 represents the very best in contemporary portrait painting. This year the exhibition will be online and available to view from 5 May.
Jamie comments, “The painting is of a friend of mine called Fatima Duke-Pratt, an artist and and artist’s model. She struck me as someone who was particularly determined to follow her aspirations of forging a future in the arts, irrespective of various difficulties. She comes across with an extremely impressive sense of personal fortitude and so I wanted to try and convey this in the way I painted her portrait.”
