The New Face of Portraiture
Image: In the end you give in – Karen Turner
We see more images of ourselves, our friends and family than ever before, and social media is full of filtered and curated images that show our fascination with presenting the best version of ourselves is as strong as it ever has been.
So what more can an artist show us about what it means to be human in 2023?
Our selected artists from the East of England and beyond have all found unique ways to explore and develop the portrait tradition, and we hope to show you the power of portraits to explore and reveal more than the faces we see in the mirror.
