neo:studios is an artist led, not-for-profit organisation, founded to aid the development of creative practitioners.
Winner of neo:residency2014
neo: is delighted to announce Dana Ariel as the winner of the first neo:residency, offered in partnership with the University of Bolton.
Dana was selected from over 200 artists who submitted to neo:graduates2013.
The 12 week residency will take place this summer and during the residency Dana will have access to the facilities in neo:studios and also at the University of Bolton, plus a total of £1000 for materials, sponsored in part by GreatArt.
Dana grew up as a non-Jewish-Israeli-of-German-descent though her work does not deal directly with her personal biography. She uses photography, printmaking, video and drawing firstly as ways of mark making and as techniques of capturing traces.
