The Lots Road Group’s latest exhibition, ‘ Connected: the changing face of Britain, aims to present a microcosm of contemporary British society against the backdrop of Brexit – a time often described as divisive.
Through an eclectic mix of sitters – diverse in age, gender, ethnicity, nationality of origin – we explore how people who live in Britain are connected, using ourselves and our meeting at The Heatherley School of Fine Art as the starting points.
Our sitters are people to whom we have personal ties, those who live in different parts of Britain, both traditionally British as well as residents who have come here from elsewhere.
As usual, our exhibition has a narrative component which introduces our sitters and explains how we are connected to them and their views on Britain today.
The Lots Road Group accept commissions.
When the exhibition, which is staged in association with Children and the Arts launches you will find a catalogue online by googling BLURB Lots Road Group and exhibition title.
