The Valerie Beston Artists’ Trust
Marlborough is pleased to present the work of Gareth Cadwallader, winner of The Valerie Beston Artists' Trust Prize 2010.
The Valerie Beston Artists' Trust was established in 2006 on the death of Miss Valerie Beston, a former director of the gallery, to support artists at the beginning of their careers. The charity is collaborating with the Royal College of Art to award an annual prize to a postgraduate student selected from the degree show. This comprises a studio for a year at SPACE, a financial contribution towards materials, tutorial support generously provided by the RCA, and an exhibition at the end of the year. Catherine Lampert and Pilar Ordovas have kindly selected the winner of the prize.
Gareth Cadwaller was born in 1979 and studied at the Slade School of Art, before completing his studies at the Royal College of Art in 2010. He lives and works in London and has participated in numerous group exhibitions, most recently Anticipation at Selfridges, London, and Newspeak: British Art Now at the Saatchi Gallery, London, both in 2010. He has had solo exhibitions at Hannah Barry Gallery, Peckham, in 2008 and 2011.
The exhibition will include two large figurative inkjet prints on paper, one depicting a picnic recreating an Impressionist dream like world and the most recent of a crashed cyclist staged during a trip to the Alps. These will be juxtaposed with a very large abstract painting and smaller figurative and abstract paintings showing the same meticulous attention to detail.
