Sandy Shoes by Kathryn Maple

Printmaking grad bags £10k watercolour prize

Kathryn Maple, who graduated from Fine Art Printmaking at Brighton in 2011 has won £10,000 in the Sunday Times Watercolour competition 2016.

The Sunday Times described Sandy Shoes as a “stunningly vibrant painting in which the colourful mosaic of domestic space cascades into the equally colourful natural space of the Southwest Indian Vypin Islands.”

Maple, who now lives and works in London, says that she has “… always been interested in interior/exterior places – and parts of India really feel like a green house waiting to explode.  Sandy Shoes looks at the filtered shapes and vibrant colours I experienced in the Vypin Islands.”

Maple studied for a BA in Fine Art Printmaking at the University of Brighton before studying at the Royal Drawing School. She now lives and works in London, having held residencies at Dumfries House and The Muse Gallery.
