We were really pleased to recently host Paloma Bosquê, winner of the 2017 NG Art prize. Born in Brazil, she lives and works in Sao Paulo and the residency was her first time in Scotland. Paloma was awarded the prize for her wish to ‘contaminate’ her sculptures with the materials of the Scottish Borders. Paloma kindly shared with us some images of work made during the residency.

‘these are a little carved coal that I made. They are a work in progress. I found a pack of coal in the house and found it very interesting. It is not common in Brazil.’
