MA Fine Art graduate exhibits in Lynn Painter-Stainers Prize 2019
Bayliss Brown’s painting ‘Once a Loved Child’ displayed in the prestigious annual exhibition.
MA Fine Art graduate Bayliss Brown has been selected to exhibit in the Lynn Painter-Stainers Prize 2019. The prestigious annual award aims to encourage the very best creative representational painting and promote the skill of draftsmanship and is one of the most prestigious awards to artists in the UK.
The tempera painting depicts a homeless man in central London, and Bayliss comments “I met this dignified man by chance in central London and was transfixed by his pathos. He is surrounded by the gaiety of colours of modern consumerism but unaffected by it. His life centres around the companionship of his well-looked after dogs with all his possessions strapped on a pedal bicycle. The group are within the contemporary world (and indeed indicative of an often forgotten segment of society – the homeless), but separated from it.”
The Lynn Painter-Stainers Prize is on show at the Mall Galleries in London until 17 March 2019.
