The Original Collection was the life-long project of Ruth Borchard, who built up a collection of 100 self-portraits by the most distinguished twentieth-century artists in Britain. The Prize offers a unique opportunity for new and established artists alike to compete for a £10,000 prize, and the chance for their work to be purchased for the Ruth Borchard Next Generation Collection.  Emily Tull's portrait, which has been shortlisted, is from a series of hand-embroidered works of art.

Here's what she says about the work:
"In this series beauty and fragility are enhanced. Hand stitching takes the place of drawing, abstracting the subject, breaking down the features to a more vulnerable state. The thread 'melting' into the fabric representing delicate 'skin'."
 
You can see her portrait "Fragility #2" exhibit along with other entries for the prize at Piano Nobile Kings Place,London until the October 9th

Sam Falconer – Scientist series

Whilst keeping in line with the same visual language as recent works, buy Sam produced an experimental series in portraiture that captures the broad achievements of these well known scientists.

Sam Falconer - Marie Curie

After graduating in 2011 Sam has constantly pushed fresh subject matter into his work and for this series wanted to combine both style and substance as opposed to leaning solely on style. Sam’s commissioned work is predominantly non portrait so wanted to strengthen the portfolio and appeal to a wider range of clients.
