The 2022 Emery Prize winner is...
Saba Qizilbash

Saba Qizilbash is an artist who creates detailed photographic drawn landscapes which meld together real landmarks into a single space, blending time and history, whilst tracing the echoes of migration.

 

"I equate walking to drawing and through my landscapes I walk through difficult landscapes. Past no mans’ lands, borders, checkpoints, disputed territories, I aspire for a seamlessness where trade, culture, language and heritage can flow freely. I follow pre-colonial routes, mapping them as I hem my way across South Asia, Central Asia and along the Persian Gulf."

As part of the prize there will be a solo-exhibition of Saba Qizilbash's artwork in the Pembroke Art Gallery in Spring 2023.
