Since graduating from a Fine Art degree at Nottingham University just 4 years ago, Margie Andrew- Reichelt has proved herself to be a fascinating and innovative watercolourist and ceramicist. She has been shortlisted for both the Threadneedle Prize (2013) and the Sunday Times Watercolour Competition (2015), as well as more recently having 2 works shortlisted for this year’s Jackson’s Open Painting Prize. Both shortlisted works were large scale watercolour portraits of her children, and dealt with the notions of identity that young people face growing up in today’s cultural and societal climate. Watercolour is a medium of contradictions with the ability to look delicate and watery or striking with vibrant splashes and spills, and so seems the perfect medium for Andrew-Reichelt’s portrayals of both vulnerability and strength.
