The MFA and BA Hons Fine Art staff this year awarded The Siobhan McQuade Memorial Prize to Lauren McCullough (image below)which amounts to £500 to be spent at Bradbury Art.
Siobhan McQuade was a graduate of BA Hons Fine Art in 2014. Her artist statement for her graduate show read “My visual practice is interwoven with the theories of Julia Kristeva’s le sémiotique and Jacques Derrida’s deconstruction. I address the issues of identity, relationships, memory, decay and transformation. Underpinning all this is a personal narrative; I am telling my mother’s story as well as my own.”
