Lottie Stoddart: Westminster Abbey drawings

In March Lottie Stoddart (DY 2015) was granted special access to draw in Westminster Abbey and has now spent over six months making new work in situ. Lottie first became interested in Westminster Abbey as a subject for investigation through visiting it as part of the William Blake course with RDS tutor Mark Cazalet.  About her current project she says: 'Being able to repeatedly revisit the site has enabled me to get to know this, initially, very overwhelming building and create work that reflects my experience of the juxtaposing periods and centuries of re-workings'. This has led to a commission by the Abbey Shop to create a set of cards and a solo exhibition next year. The private view will be on 9th February 2017 in St. Margaret's Westminster.
