Extrude by Charlotte Roseberry

It has been a very exciting few days for ECA Collections as, for the first time since the curatorial team started, works have been formally collected for the ECA Art Collection from the annual Degree Show, which opens to the public on Saturday 1st of June.

The new ECA Collections Purchase Prize highlights outstanding works from across ECA for acquisition into the art collections and recent graduates now find their work sitting happily alongside other former students such as Anne Redpath, Eduardo Paolozzi and S.J. Peploe, among others.

The first works that we confirmed for the collection are by Charlotte Roseberry. Two of Charlotte’s paintings are now in the ECA Collection, Nugget and Extrude (pictured) and we were delighted to secure both of them.

This is an important first step for us and part of a larger desire to built an outstanding contemporary art collection for The University of Edinburgh, of which ECA graduates will be a vital element.
