Join us for the exhibition reception of Lifting the lid, all are welcome.

Lifting the Lid is a solo exhibition of works by multi-disciplinary artist Lottie Stoddart. The paintings, ceramics and animations on display explore various forms of enchantment.

These works depict enclosed realms; illusionistic, contained spaces where a residual story, memory, atmosphere plays out under its own internal laws. The use and depiction of humble materials in a reduced economy of form, play with registers of familiarity and ubiquity. The rendering and use of varied materials in their collaged, shallow spaces hint at the unconscious and weird; from monstrous and mutating to celebratory and sensual, in a language that is playfully remembered, imagined, warped, and reduced.

Lottie received the APT & Fenton Trust Mentoring Award in 2021 and was selected for the Exeter Contemporary Open in 2022. She studied on the Drawing Year at the Royal Drawing School (2015-16) and on the Turps Painting Programme (2019-2021). Lottie was born in Cambridge and is based in London.
