To all my much appreciated followers and supporters of the work towards expressing and articulating patient the lived experience of illness through art. This is an unusual thing for me to do and I hope that you will understand the reasons. So…here goes!
Artes Mundi is an internationally focused arts organisation that identifies, recognises and supports contemporary visual artists who engage with the human condition, social reality and lived experience.
Founded in 2002 by Welsh artist William Wilkins, Artes Mundi is best known for its biennial international Exhibition and Prize which takes place in Cardiff. The exhibition is Wales’ biggest and most exciting contemporary visual art show. One of the shortlisted artists is awarded the prize of £40,000, the largest art prize in the UK and one of the most significant in the world.
Here is my respectful request:
Artists must be nominated for the prize and for Artes Mundi 8 all nominations must be submitted by 17:00 GMT on 15th May 2017. I am hoping that someone may able to nominate me for the work that I do. It goes without saying I think that were I to be shortlisted it would be excellent in terms of getting my work seen more and thus help the cause and indeed, were I to actually win the prize money would be of huge advantage in continuing and expanding the scope of my work.
If you feel you can help please follow this link to nominate me:
With grateful thanks
