The 2022 Emery Prize winner is...
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.

an online exhibition
Explore our collection with our new online exhibition Portraits: What you lookin' at? Discover paintings, sculptures, photographs and drawings which depicture figures and faces. Some of the sitters stare out of the frame, looking back at the viewer. Others are seemingly unaware they are being watched, captured unawares.
