The exhibition looks beyond the gallery program by showcasing the works of four international artists, some of whom have never been exhibited in London before, alongside some of the UK’s most exciting emerging artists.
Laura Lancaster: Closer and Further Away4 Jun - 30 Jul 2021 Workplace is pleased to present Closer and Further Away, a solo show of new paintings by British artist Laura Lancaster in which she focuses on the reinterpretation of classical subjects involving the female figure, such as sleeping women and women in pastoral settings. Mostly executed during national lockdowns, the paintings in the show reflect the artist’s yearning for space and freedom, her reaction to confinement and her re-evaluation of the relationship between individuals and their physical environments. These works continue Lancaster’s exploration of the tension between figuration and abstraction, control and abandonment, and the use of the photographic sources as a trigger for a process of action and reaction.
