Flora Grosvenor-Stevenson wins #ArtistResolution competition at Shoreditch Boxpark
The results are in from our “Artist Resolution” gallery competition at Boxpark and the talented young artist Flora Grosvenor-Stevenson has scooped top spot. Thanks to all who tweeted us their favourite artist; we received over 70 votes.
Congratulations to Flora who receives £150 and a mentoring session with a top creative professional. Here’s what she had to say:
My name is Flora Grosvenor-Stevenson; I’m studying BA Fine Art at Central Saint Martins. My practice at the moment combines an interest in the psychology of ageing with childhood naivety and a strange personal attachment to the circular form with the belief that everything in life is a circle or goes full circle. I take technical influences from a lot of different places so it’s hard to pinpoint and say what my main influences are; I suppose I’m a really organised hoarder of things like patterns, drawings, paintings, poems, songs and scientific research, and these things slowly get dragged out to help me develop what it is that is making me who I am.
