Converse/Dazed Emerging Artists Award: Myles Painter.
The entries are in and the artists have been shortlisted. The Converse Emerging Artists panel, including Jeremy Deller, James Early, Kirsty Ogg, Yuri Pattison, Magnus Edensvard, Nancy Durrant, and Dazed's Visual Arts Editor Francesca Gavin, have whittled it down to the final four.
Dazed Digital: How does your work differ from that of other artists?
Myles Painter: I don’t try to be different, just myself. I am concerned with utilising modern technologies and collaborating with contemporary artists and writers in my work, so in that sense I guess I could say I embrace the possibility of the new in aesthetic approach and thought.
DD: What will you be producing for the show at Osborn Street?
Myles Painter: It’s called ‘Time of The Fox, Catalogues 16:3:9’ and is a film that hypothesises on the idea of a post-apocalyptic future London with one iconic building as its visual centrepiece.
DD: What would you do with the prize money, if you won?
Myles Painter: I used to work at the A Foundation in Liverpool but it sadly closed due to funding cuts putting an end to its ambitious exhibitions and to my residency. In place of that, the money from this prize would help me to fund a new film project that I have underway and get a permanent studio space.
Myles Painter participated in "A Curriculum" at A Foundation in Liverpool England.
