Threadneedle Prize reveals 2010 shortlist

26th July 2010

The shortlist for the GBP 25,000 Threadneedle Prize 2010 has been announced.

Seven works of art have been selected from more than 2,100 entries by a judging panel consisting of National Gallery assistant curator Xavier Bray, Royal College of Art professor of painting David Rayson and sculptor Michael Sandle.

Oil painting Clee Hill 2009 by Boyd and Evans, Patricia Cain's pastel Building the Riverside Museum and acrylic painting Road Side by Paul Cummings are among the shortlisted works.

Thomas Doran's oil on wood Car Boot Closing, The Horrors of Tek 33 painting by James Jessop, Stuart McCaffer's mixed media project Den and the oil-based Frame, figure, frame, figure by Caroline Walker are the remaining pieces in the running for the accolade.

Explaining the process behind choosing the shortlist, the panel said: 'The emphasis for this year's prize is on producing a visually coherent exhibition from a collection of outstanding contemporary figurative paintings and sculptures.'

Last year, 36-year-old artist Sheila Wallis won the Threadneedle Prize for her Self-portrait, which was lauded by the judges for being 'unusual, delicate and sensitive'.
