Zealous Stories: Painting 2022 winner Amy Dury is an artist based in Hove, specialising in oil painting. Her paintings explore nostalgia and the false memories it sparks through a use of archival film and imagery as a reference.
Zealous Stories: Painting winner, Edinburgh-based artist Emily Moore, creates arresting landscape paintings using an amalgamation of personal source images and experiences. Moore's creative process allows her to recall each place and combine them to create new, anonymous landscapes.
Contemporary landscape painter, Tori Tipton, explores our emotional response and attitudes towards the natural environment. Her work is an amalgamation of recollections, observations and experiences. Amidst these ambivalent forces of nature, one can retreat from civilization and reconnect with the earth.

Meet Jess Burgess, MA Fine Art graduate and winner of the first Zealous Stories, open to UK-based painters. Jess' practice asks questions surrounding the virtual screen, and has in turn driven her desire to explore painting as a slower medium. A fascination with recipe books has allowed her to break into new grounds, creating her own recipes for an 'ideal world' in each painting.
