Delighted to have acquired works by young artist Tom Lovelace that reference one of the seminal works in the history of photography, William Henry Fox Talbot’s Open Door.

Lovelace inverts the image of the door and Talbot’s open door is now closed. Talbot welcomes us to a new era, but Lovelace from today’s perspective suggests, not the beginning, but the end of history. Meanwhile, his related work, Sweep, which was first show at the Victoria and Albert Museum in September 2014, takes Talbot’s motif of the broom and provides a modern update.
