New Work - Painting

Lotta Teale - Concise Vignettes

"This exhibition, my first solo show at a West End gallery, was won as a prize for coming first in the British Art Prize, 2021, sponsored by Panter & Hall. I could not be more thrilled to have the opportunity to show my works here.

The exhibition brings together recent paintings from the last year spent between Cyprus, Italy and England. I live partly in Tuscany (in my late grandmother’s place), and partly in London (where I was brought up), but this winter I found myself in Cyprus for two months. This allowed me the opportunity to explore a country I had long wanted to visit, following in the footsteps of my grandmother who had been born there.

While some of the works are architecture and interiors from these places, many are still lifes, an important component of my painting practice. Regardless of subject matter, I try to make my compositions as simple as possible, allowing for balance, rhythm and letting the subject breathe; painting with brevity, accuracy and a looseness of brush stroke."
