OV Receives Prestigious Painting Prize

Congratulations go to OV Anna Porter (Ch 12-19) who has had one of her A Level paintings selected for the prestigious Jackson’s Painting Prize 2021.

Anna, who is currently studying architecture at Sheffield University, completed the painting, ‘Night Shift’ in her U6 year as part of her final exhibition.

The work depicts office workers viewed from the exterior and explores the relationship between the subject and the observer, and the mundane contemporary environments we inhabit.

No stranger to success, the painting has already been selected by the Royal Academy as part of their Young Artists’ Summer Exhibition, but it is particularly impressive that it has been chosen for this competition as there were over 8,600 entries from professional artists from around the world. Anna’s brilliant painting, along with the other works selected, can be viewed on the Jackson’s Painting Prize website here .
