'ESTATE', ANDREW TORR, OIL PAINT ON LINEN, 120 X 120 CM

Jackson’s Art Prize 2024 Winner

Andrew Torr, Estate

Oil on linen, 120 x 120 cm | 47.2 x 47.2 in

“Andrew Torr’s melancholic Estate deftly evokes the familiar yet inconspicuous spaces where a housing estate meets the countryside and gently injects this highly accomplished painting with a hint of Romanticism.

Quiet and understated, Estate gradually reveals a skilful combination of techniques from the fine foreground detail and the curious abstract flecks in the midground to the spare brushwork that evokes the buildings which begin to melt into the sky where they meet on the horizon.” Jackson’s Judging Committee

'LEAVING THE HOUSE, FOLLOWED', ALESSANDRA ACIERNO, OIL PAINT ON CANVAS, 127 X 117.5 CM

Second Prize

Alessandra Acierno, Leaving the House, Followed

Oil on canvas, 127 x 117.5 cm | 50 x 46.2 in

“Alessandra Acierno’s painting Leaving The House, Followed is about encounter and unease, and how, for the viewer, a lack of crucial details about this crossing of paths dislocates its meaning.

Through clever use of close tones and harmonious hues, this complex and ominous work exudes a powerful emotional intensity and a jarring suspended narrative.” Jackson’s Judging Committee

'LEAVING THE HOUSE, FOLLOWED', ALESSANDRA ACIERNO, OIL PAINT ON CANVAS, 127 X 117.5 CM
'HUNTERS OF THE BLACK SWAN', DANIEL LEYLAND, OIL PAINT ON CANVAS, 90 X 120 CM

Runner Up

Danny Leyland, Hunters of the Black Swan

Oil on canvas, 90 x 120 cm | 35.4 x 47.2 in

“Danny Leyland’s work revels in the idea of time, place and meaning overlapping where ghosts from the past clash with the present. His painting has a loose, almost collaged style that creates something intriguing and compelling.” Jackson’s Judging Committee

'HUNTERS OF THE BLACK SWAN', DANIEL LEYLAND, OIL PAINT ON CANVAS, 90 X 120 CM

Runner Up

Jakob Sheidt, The Three

Acrylic and oil on canvas, 200 x 130 cm | 78.7 x 51.1 in

“Sumptuous colour choices that play with big tonal shifts to create something fresh and contemporary in feel, Jakob Scheidt’s The Three is highly accomplished both formally and figuratively.” Jackson’s Judging Committee

'BEASTS', EMELI THEANDER, OIL PAINT ON CANVAS, 160 X 120 CM

Runner Up

Emeli Theander, Beasts

Oil on canvas, 160 x 120 cm | 69.9 x 47.2 in

“Emeli Theander’s playful and lyrical painting has a mysterious, almost baroque feel. A reflection on motherhood, Beasts has a wonderful sense of movement counterbalanced by the stillness of the water.” Jackson’s Judging Committee

'BEASTS', EMELI THEANDER, OIL PAINT ON CANVAS, 160 X 120 CM
'LONE STAR', ABI WHITLOCK, ACRYLIC PAINT ON CANVAS, 80 X 40CM

People’s Choice Award Winner

Abi Whitlock, Lone Star

Acrylic on canvas, 80 x 40 cm | 31.4 x 15.7 in

Thank you for voting for the winner of the People’s Choice Award from the longlist.

'LONE STAR', ABI WHITLOCK, ACRYLIC PAINT ON CANVAS, 80 X 40CM
