The final shortlist is open to the public to vote for the piece of literature or the visual arts that they feel best represents 2015.
Brian's drawing is called "Crack Drawing: Vermeer Woman in Blue Reading a Letter 1662-65". Brian has used a conservator's image of the original painting, in which the cracks and dust of time are equivalent to time's wrinkles on a human face.
