Life, Love and Death presents a major new body of work by Richard Lewer which includes paintings that are based on old photographs depicting everyday family life and exploring events that shape us all as we grow up: family homes, milestones, celebrations, pets, friends, and first loves. His iterative process of applying paint and wiping it away from the steel and copper substrate allows his imagery to develop like a photograph and the resulting subjects are muted and blurred like fond memories of times gone by. The works will be shown alongside three of Lewer’s animations, including 2014 Blake Prize-winning work Worse Luck... I am still here.
