Pavel Buchler wins Northern Art Prize

22nd January 2010

Manchester sound artist Pavel Buchler has been named as the winner of the 2010 Northern Art Prize.

The Prague-born teacher, who displayed seven of his most recent works in the prize's exhibition, took home a GBP 16,500 reward after being unveiled as the third winner of the competition in a ceremony at Leeds Art Gallery.

Buchler saw off competition from pencil artist Rachel Goodyear, filmmaker Matt Stokes and video art duo Nick Crowe and Ian Rawlinson, who were all awarded GBP 1,500 each as runners-up.

The judging panel comprised sculptor Richard Deacon, Art Monthly editor Patricia Bickers, Yorkshire Sculpture Park director Peter Murray, Contemporary Art Society director Paul Hobson and Tanja Pirsig-Marshal, curator of exhibitions at Leeds Art Gallery.

A statement from the panel commented: 'Buchler has been consistently influential to a huge amount of people throughout his career, as a practitioner and teacher.'

The judges also singled out the artist's Eclipse installation as a 'very strong piece of work'.

Writing recently in the Guardian, critic Alfred Hickling said the Northern Art Prize would pick Buchler as the winner if it rewards longevity, while Stokes would be chosen if it is looking for 'young and hot' talent.
