Roger Mortimer has been described as a contemporary visual mythologist. In his paintings beauty and barbarity combine as he grapples with the timelessness of the big issues of history and humanity. Medieval graphic imagery, set on a backdrop of marine charts, resonates powerfully with contemporary global issues and turmoil to suggest both psychological and political readings.
Come and hear Linda Tyler, art historian and the co-curator of Roger’s 2017 survey exhibition, discuss his distinctive work with him, followed by questions and a glass of wine.
