Digital Pre Selection Procedure

ONLINE REGISTRATION AND PRE-SELECTION

Mall Galleries now operate an online registration and two-stage digital PRE-SELECTION process for member society open exhibitions. This process allows you to register online and to upload a digital image of each submission onto a dedicated web page. 

Our selectors will then make an initial assessment of each work based on the online digital image you have uploaded. You do not need to hand in any work at this stage.  Work that passes this initial assessment is pre-selected and will be invited in to the Mall Galleries for judging by members of the selection committee.

This new process means that artists entering the open competition will no longer have to bear the costs of transporting works into central London - unless their work passes pre-selection. We hope digital pre-selection will encourage more artists from different parts of the UK to submit their work.

• When completing this form you will be asked to confirm you have read and agreed our exhibition rules.

How will I be notified if my work has been pre-selected?

To check whether or not your work has been pre-selected, go to www.registrationmallgalleries.org.uk and login using your unique artist details from midday Friday 12th December 2014 and you will be informed whether or not your work(s) have been pre-selected.  If a work has been pre-selected, print off TWO copies of the Registration Form and bring both copies with your works to 17 Carlton House Terrace, London SW1Y 5BD on the Receiving Day. 

Does pre-selection imply my work has been selected for the exhibition?

No, but it means that one or more of your works has attracted the attention of our selectors.  If your work is pre-selected you will be invited to hand in the work, so it can be shown to our panel of selectors, who will then decide whether or not to select it for the exhibition.

If my work is pre-selected, where do I find labels?

Labels are available when you log-in using your unique artist login details (email address and password) at www.registrationmallgalleries.org.uk.  You should print off and complete an online label for each pre-selected work in the usual way (your name, address, title of work, medium and price), before attaching it to the back of each pre-selected work.

Artist's Statement:

My work is the expression of a lifelong affinity with the landscape. I live on the North Yorkshire coast of the UK, and this location is a constant source of inspiration to my painting. My interest lies not in making a literal representation of nature but rather in celebrating the physical sensory experience of land and sea. As a result, the semi-abstract paintings are vibrant and energetic, combining gestural marks and the use of rich evocative colour.
Associations arise from the colours and lines - a fresh green may be reminiscent of new foliage in springtime, a round shape may recall pebbles smoothed by the waves. I use a gradual layering of paint to create my work, and oil sticks (oil paint in solid form) are often used to integrate drawing and painting. Recently drawing has been central to my work and I have used pastel, charcoal and graphite to explore mark-making. Influences include Abstract Expressionism (particularly Willem de Kooning), Joan Eardley, Cy Twombly and Cornish art.
I have exhibited extensively across the UK, including with the Royal Academy of Arts, the Society of Women Artists, and the Pastel Society UK, London. I am honoured to have won awards for my work such as The Arts Club Charitable Trust Award in 2014, the Haworth Prize in 2015, and the Unison Colour Young Artists Award in 2016, London. This year I am excited to have been elected a member of the prestigious Pastel Society, London. I have work in private collections across the UK and Europe, Africa, Mexico and the US.
