The figure is central to the work of Laura Lancaster, its presence intensified by the opposing entropic force of abstraction which perpetually subsumes and engulfs the protagonist. Images that are of their era - located in time through incidental clues such as clothing, pose, and contingent detail - are monumentalised by Lancaster through painting.

Laura Lancaster (b.1979, Hartlepool, UK) lives and works in Newcastle upon Tyne, UK.
