Justin Mortimer

Justin Mortimer (Cosford, 1970). His works combine images from the Internet with archival material from old books and magazines, presenting a world where nothing is stable or certain, echoing in the tectonic fissures opening up in the old world order. Mortimer has received prestigious awards, including the EAST Award (2004), the NatWest Art Prize (1996) and the BP National Portrait Award (1991). His work has been included in numerous reviews and publications on contemporary painting, including Landscape Painting Now (2019), The Anomie Review of Contemporary British Painting (2018), A Brush With The Real: Figurative Painting Today (2014) and New Perspectives in Painting (2011). Recent solo exhibitions include Tomorrow at Space K, Gwacheon, Korea (2020), a show at the Djanogly Art Gallery, University of Nottingham (2015), Future Perfect, in Singapore (2015) and Haunch of Venison, in London (2012).
