Jennifer Davey Memorial Award for Fine Art 2016/17
Year Three BA (Hons) Fine Art students Lindsay Jolly and Yasmin Sartin were joint winners of the 2016-17 Jennifer Davey Memorial Award for Fine Art. Both students were thrilled to have been awarded the prize, and will both receive £300.
Mr. Brian Davey, judging the award said “This year like many others before it, the Jennifer Davey Award has been difficult to make. There were a rewarding number of applicants who all made a very good presentation of their work and I would like to thank them all for making the effort to apply.”
“Unfortunately, not all can be winners and so the decision was made to select, like last year, two people whose work and outlook was considered to be more in keeping with the interests of my late wife. Both Lindsay and Yasmin demonstrated the qualities I thought important and provided an ability to answer questions in an appropriate way.”
“Yasmin stood out as being a very talented artist producing some very striking work but was also open to constructive criticism, which I felt would make her become a better artist in the future. Her confident ability to describe her motivation I considered a very positive advantage. Lindsay demonstrated a gift for invention and experimentation that encompassed many mediums. Her resulting work was sympathetically assessed and reflected a wider appreciation for the materials used”.
