Tarpey Gallery is thrilled to announce the winner of the Nottingham Castle Open 2014 : Tarpey Gallery Prize is Nottinghamshire based painter Jackie Berridge- Through our sponsorship of the fantastic Nottingham Castle Open we are able to view some of the regions finest practitioners and choose an artist from this group to exhibit with us and be part of our ambitious exhibitions programme.
Jackie will be an exciting addition to this programme and we are looking forward to showing her work at Tarpey Gallery soon. For now i’ll let Jackie give a brief introduction to her studio practise.
“My work focuses on the complexities of human behaviour, in particular group dynamics and social isolation. I am fascinated by the subtle nuances of body language – the tilted heads, twisted bodies and small involuntary gestures signifying elements of power, control and vulnerability.”
