John Moores Painting Prize

Join OCA tutor Donal Moloney at the Walker Art Gallery in Liverpool on the 27 August.
From George Orwell’s ‘Animal Farm’ to a statue of an assassinated politician, the sources of inspiration behind the paintings in this year’s exhibition are varied and wide-ranging. Similarly diverse are the painting materials used by some of this year’s artists, from Plasticine on an altered book cover to acrylic on sheets of industrial aluminium foil.
A theme explored in a number of entries is the act of painting itself, with several works exploring the significance, challenges and value of this medium.
Donal is also one of the selected artists in the show and will be able to discuss his work with you.

  • I had to miss this study visit but have now been to see the exhibition. I’d like to know what other students thought of the works they saw – has anyone written the visit up for their blogs?
