LOTTE SCOTT – WINNER OF THE GILCHRIST-FISHER AWARD 2020

The judges – photographer Harry Cory-Wright, sculptor Laura Ford and painter Elizabeth Magill – chose Lotte Scott as the winner of the Gilchrist-Fisher Award 2020 in February 2020.

The £6000 prize was awarded to Lotte Scott.

Lotte said: “I am deeply honoured to receive the Gilchrist Fisher Award.  My work is the result of seven years researching a particular corner of Somerset, a slow, meditative study of a environmentally complex landscape. The award will be an invaluable support to my practice, providing me first and foremost with time, as well as the means to acquire new skills and equipment. I feel very fortunate.”
