Anna Liber Lewis at The Lightbox

Earlier this year we invited our 2017 Purchase Prize winner Anna Liber Lewis to respond to a work of her choice from our Modern British Art collection.  Her latest exhibition, opening at The Lightbox on the 1st December, shows her series of paintings inspired by Eileen Agar’s 1937 painting, The Sower, and demonstrates the artists’ shared interest in natural forms, cycles of seasons, life and death and the subconscious.

Anna’s work is often concerned with ideas around female sexuality, challenging depictions of women created historically by men. Reflecting on this exhibition, Anna 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.”
