Surrey Sculpture Prize Winner 2021 Announced

Tuesday June 15, 2021

We are delighted to announce that BA (Hons) Fine Art Level 6 student Mary Modha has won the Surrey Sculpture Prize for her entry, Inheritance (pictured).

The judges were also extremely impressed by the entries of Livia Spinolo and Simon Yates and they had this to say about the entries:

“We thoroughly enjoyed judging such a diverse set of applications.  The winner and two highly commended pieces scored highly in respect of the pre-defined criteria

  • Development of skill in the chosen technique
  • Imaginative use of 3D materials
  • How effectively the sculptural language reflects the intention for the piece

We felt that Mary’s use of sculpture to convey a simultaneous feeling of love and rejection was particularly striking and poignant.

Congratulations to all involved and we look forward to exhibiting work from the three individuals in the coming year.”

Mary receives £500 prize money, a year’s Membership to the Surrey Sculpture Society and free entry into the Annual Surrey Sculpture Society Exhibition with the opportunity to exhibit indoors or outdoors depending on the work.
