Event description

Description

In Lotta's first solo show, ‘Still Life, Italy, England’, her figurative oil studies painted from life remind viewers to appreciate the beauty in the every day. Having worked for 15 years on challenging current affairs in low income countries, her paintings encourage viewers to stop and appreciate the ordinary things around them, be they an egg, a set of cutlery or a corner of the terrace. They seek to provide the viewer with a brief relief from the worries of the contemporary world.

Her work charts the various places where she lives and works, in London, Dorset, Tuscany and Islamabad, and the different objects she finds around her. She’ll be showing streets around Marylebone, views across the Thames, and a range of landscapes from Italy. The show will have a particular focus on Lotta's series on penguin books, her grandfather Allen Lane having founded the publishing company.

Lotta’s work has been selected for a number of exhibitions, including the Royal Institute of Oil Painters Annual Open Exhibition, Mall Galleries (2018, 2019), the Royal West of England Academy’s Annual Exhibition (2019), Chelsea Art Society’s Annual Open Exhibition (2019), and she was selected as a finalist in the Marshwood Arts Awards (2019) and Holly Bush Emerging Woman Painter Prize (2018). See www.lottateale.com or https://www.instagram.com/lottateale/ for more details on Lotta's work.

Please note, the gallery will be closed on Saturday 11th April.
