Congratulations to artist Patricia Cain who was awarded the Threadneedle Prize for her work 'Building the Riverside Museum'. Some images of her work are available here.


Patricia has visited the Ballast Trust recently to discuss the processes of construction with Duncan and look at some of the images we have in the Lind collection of shipyards and the construction of large liners.

More information is available from the Threadneedle press release:
Patricia Cain trained as a lawyer before becoming a fulltime artist in 2004, going on to complete her PhD at Glasgow School of Art. She lives and works in Glasgow, and her work is focused largely on regeneration of the city. Building the Riverside Museum explores the physical construction of the Glasgow Riverside Museum of Transport, designed by architect Zaha Hadid. Cain uses pastel, often considered a difficult medium, to create large-scale industrial drawings, where broad and confident lines of colour build a structure into the work that replicates its subject matter. Earlier this year, Cain won the Aspect Prize 2009/10.
