Michael Simpson wins the John Moores Painting Prize

Wiltshire based artist Michael Simpson is the winner of the John Moores Painting Prize 2016. He will receive the first prize of £25,000 for his oil painting Squint (19). The work depicts an aperture in a medieval church that allowed lepers and others a chance to view the sermons taking place while remaining separate from other members of the public.
