Laura Youngson Coll, who works with leather and vellum, this year’s award winner
The Perrier-Jouët Arts Salon Prize, which launched last year, focuses on makers whose work is ‘inspired by natural forms and organic structures’, a reflection of the champagne brand’s own Art Nouveau heritage. As well as the opportunity to exhibit at Contemporary Applied Arts, Youngson Coll also receives £10,000 as part of the award: ‘I am thrilled to be selected for this generous award. Not only does it provide funding and publicity essential for my work as an emerging practitioner, the selection is considered by a highly respected community of Arts professionals. I look forward to an intense period, planning and creating my exhibition and working with the Champagne Perrier-Jouët Arts Salon.’
Yougson Coll’s solo exhibition will be at Contemporary Applied Arts from 25 June to 31 August.
