I am honoured to be one of the 26 artists shortlisted for this year's Zurich Portrait Prize. My portrait of Gyuri, a friends daughter was painted earlier this year during the lockdown.
My portrait of Gyuri will be exhibited at the National Gallery of Ireland from 21 November 2020 to 21 March 2021. The exhibition will then travel to Crawford Art Gallery, Cork from 17 April to 11 July 2021. The overall winner of the prize will be announced on 01 December 2020.
The aim of the Zurich Portrait Prize is to showcase and encourage interest in contemporary portraiture, and to raise the profile of the long-standing and constantly evolving National Portrait Collection at the National Gallery of Ireland.
