Anna Liber Lewis: Young Contemporary Talent from The Ingram Collection
1 December 2018 – 6 January 2019
Free to all
Discover the work of acclaimed emerging artist Anna Liber Lewis, a winner of the Ingram Collection's annual Purchase Prize in 2017.
This exhibition is part of a series of solo shows from artists represented in ‘Young Contemporary Talent’, a fast-growing element of The Ingram Collection – one of the most significant publicly accessible collections of Modern British art in the UK.
Taking an Eileen Agar painting The Sower as inspiration, Anna Liber Lewis has produced a series of paintings demonstrating the artists’ shared interests in natural forms, cycles of seasons, life and death and the subconscious.
Lewis’ work is often concerned with ideas around female sexuality, challenging depictions of women created historically by men. Seeking comfort in Agar’s work, the artist says, 'It is enriching to strike a connection with another female artist across time, tracing her thoughts and desires in her work and biography. I was drawn to allowing shape, form, memory and intuition enter my work; and it feels reassuring to see this shift in my own practice validated through Agar.'
