I am excited to officially announce that I have been selected for the forthcoming Thames and Hudson publication ‘100 Painters of Tomorrow’ to be release in late September 2014.

From the press release:

100 Painters of Tomorrow is the culmination of a major new project to find
the most exciting, up-and-coming painters at work today. This major
publication introduces and presents the work of a global cast of painters
selected by an international panel featuring some of the most prominent
names in contemporary art, and offers an intelligent snapshot of the best
new talent in painting from across the world.

100 Painters of Tomorrow features high-quality reproductions of each artist’s
work plus short exploratory texts by author Kurt Beers – often including
biographical detail and quotations from the artists themselves – that provide
a personal insight into their thinking and their creative practice. Complete
with resources including a global listing of further artists to watch, this is
the definitive book on the outstanding painters of the future.

The selection panel comprised the painter Cecily Brown, curators Tony
Godfrey, Yuko Hasegawa and Gregor Muir, Director of the ICA (who
has also written the Introduction), writer-critics Suzanne Hudson, Barry
Schwabsky and Philip Tinari, writer/editor Jacky Klein, collector Valeria
Napoleone and Kurt Beers.
