Exhibition: Lucy Jones | Awkward Beauty


Until 13 December 2020

Figurative artist Lucy Jones is renowned for her richly coloured works, exploring the internal in her intimately personal portraits and the external in her expressively raw depictions of the British landscape. This retrospective exhibition spans a period of over 30 years, from the beginning of Jones’ career (shortly after graduating from Camberwell College of Arts, the Royal College of Art and the British School in Rome) to work created during the recent lockdown.

The works on display trace Jones’ developing style, bringing together the two elements of her practice and revealing how they inform and nurture each other: the portraits allow her to address a complex kaleidoscope of human emotion and philosophies of the ‘self’, whilst her landscapes offer a more neutral space. “People tend to like either the landscapes or the portraits, and people who like the one don’t understand why I do the other, but for me the two go absolutely hand-in-hand” says Jones.
