The three recipients, Charlotte Hayes, Megan Squire and Charlotte Elizabeth Roberts, are all recent graduates from The Glasgow School of Art. The RGI Graduate Award is awarded to emerging artists at the GSA Degree show, in recognition of an outstanding work. The RGI Graduate Award exhibition will be held in late September 2020. About the Artists: Megan Squire is a painter from Preston, Lancashire and a recent graduate of Painting and Printmaking at The Glasgow School of Art. In her practice, image-making is an act of self-positioning and constellating the self. Her paintings are manifestations of self-made tropes that encode memories, observations and the imagined. She works predominantly with water-soluble oils on canvas, diluting the paint and adding it in increments with a fine brush so that it sits within the grain of the canvas. The realisation of these tropes in material form (as art-objects) becomes yet another aspect to their existence in her constellation. Instagram: @megsquireart Charlotte Elizabeth Roberts is a Glasgow based visual artist and photographer whose work recontextualises historical ideas and beliefs into imagery and interactive experiences. The artist considers the idea that culture could replace religious scripture as a guidance for achieving self-actualization in modern times. Roberts graduated in Fine Art Photography from GSA. Instagram: @charlotterobrts Charlotte Hayes is a Glasgow based artist from York, who has recently graduated from Sculpture and Environmental art at GSA. Her practice explores museum collections, folklore and animal behaviours. She often looks at ritual-like behaviour in animal social structures, while observing traditions being formed online and in digital communities. Exploring how modern-day scientific advances have a ceremonial notion; such as Dolly the Sheep being a modern-day act of animal sacrifice.
