Duncan Pickstock

Rita Harris Studio Award
2014/15

Duncan Pickstock’s work uses the framework of landscape painting to explore how forms relate to each other in space. Duncan says of his paintings “I am interested in relating my experience as a person confronted with a city or a landscape but not by making a representation of it; so not so much 'I saw this' but more 'I felt this'.”

Rita Harris Studio Award

The Rita Harris Award was in memory of artist and former Acme studio holder, Rita Harris, and took place between 2008-2017. It was one of two studio alternating awards for an Acme tenant, along with the Jessica Wilkes Award. It provided artists with full rent relief on their Acme studio for one year, mentoring support and a bursary to support their practice over the year.
