We are proud to announce the Le Masurier ‘Blank Canvas’ Competition in partnership with the JCG Foundation. You have a chance to win £1,000 and have your artwork displayed in the new Le Masurier Headquarters as part of our Community Engagement programme.
what do we need?
We are looking for three works of art to hang in the new Le Masurier Headquarters in St Helier. Created by local students, these works of art should portray different areas of the Le Masurier Brand.
Art students from all local schools, facilitated by the JCG Foundation, will have the opportunity to take part in this exciting competition to provide the new Le Masurier Headquarters with artwork inspired by an eclectic mix of styles and funding to help the winning students and schools continue with their passion for art.
Artwork 1: Reception Area – Community Engagement
Dimensions: 6ft wide x 3.5ft high.
Subject: graphically interpret the Le Masurier community engagement initiative under its 3 key areas: People, Planet, Partners.
We are looking for a compelling piece of art that provides our visitors with the Le Masurier Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) story and explains that, to the Le Masurier team, CSR is more than 3 letters! The piece needs to show what we do to support the community we live and work in. This piece should explain what our CSR objectives are achieving and create a talking point for us to engage with local organisations focusing on People, Planet and Partners.

Suggested style: James Rosenquist
In the Reception area we are looking for a bold, colourful design that is inspired by the giant billboard-sized paintings made in the 1960s by the American artist James Rosenquist. You might like to begin by making a photo-collage, then scaling up part of the composition, as Rosenquist did in his sketchbooks.
Artwork 2: Meeting Room – The Le Masurier Business Today
Dimensions: 3ft 10” wide x 3.5ft high.
Subject: This art work needs to present what we do as property investors and developers.
It could be architectural, city skyline, buildings under construction etc. To understand the Le Masurier business and where we work, please visit www.lemasurier.co.uk/about-us
Suggested style: Georgia O’Keeffe
For our Meeting Room, we would love a large design to depict what Le Masurier does today. In the style of Georgia O’Keeffe (City skyscrapers/skyline). Of note is her skill at depicting the buildings in the Precisionist style. She also made atmospheric cityscapes of her view of the East River and smoke-emitting factories in Queens.
