Four artists from the NTU fine art course will be showing work in Enough is Definitely Enough, an exhibition curated by Andrew Bracey at General Practice in Lincoln.

Louisa Chambers, Geoff Diego Litherland, Danica Maier, Andrew Pepper and Gerard Williams.

Over 40 contemporary artists have made new artworks in response to a postcard version of Velázquez’s masterpiece, Las Meninas for an exhibition at General Practice in Lincoln. ‘Enough is Definitely Enough’ which opens on 30 March and runs to 13 April, features a huge variety of different artistic responses to the Spanish painter’s masterpiece - arguably the most widely interpreted of all paintings.


Art Historian Daniel Arasse reflected many people's view that everything, or perhaps even nothing, has been said about Las Meninas -"what's the difference, enough is definitely enough!". The artists in the exhibition build upon previous interpretations by renowned artists such as Pablo Picasso, Richard Hamilton, Francesco Goya and Eve Sussman. Artists have long been actively influenced by the centuries old painting by Velázquez; with their responses, in turn, offering influence back to Las Meninas to enable new readings. With the artworks made for ‘Enough is Definitely Enough’ there is potential for new relationships with Velasquez's original painting to open up.


The exhibition forms part of Andrew Bracey's PhD research at the University of Lincoln. He is exploring how contemporary artists have used and appropriated existing paintings by other artists, through a position of using the metaphor of the parasite and symbiosis in connection with painting.


Artists: Euripides Altintzoglou, Tristram Aver, Maggie Ayliffe, Sarah Bennett, Juan Bolivar, Andrew Bracey, Louise Bristow, Kate Buckley, Louisa Chambers, Fiona Curran, Gordon Dalton, Karen David, Annabel Dover, Leo Fitzmaurice, Rebecca Fortnum, Rachel Goodyear, Simón Granell, Tom Hackney, Sharon Hall, Lesley Halliwell, Simon Harris, Ilona Kiss, Geoff Diego Litherland, Alison Lloyd, Cathy Lomax, Rachel Lumsden, Danica Maier, David Manley, Enzo Marra, Andrew Pepper, Yelena Popova, James Quinn, Daniel Rapley, Lucy Renton, John Rimmer, John M Robinson, David Ryan, Nick Simpson, Stephen Snoddy, Soheila Sokhanvari, Annabel Tilley, Alun Williams, Gerard Williams.

Alison Ballard is showing new work on the Big Screen Southend.

'The Inner Voice', 2017
Alison Ballard

05:08 minutes

80% of people hear an inner voice when they read. It helps us to understand and digest what we are reading but it also slows us down. Speed-reading technologies can help us to remove the inner voice but this voice may be a profound part of what it means to be human. What impact could removing it have on our cognitive abilities and our sense of self? In this short text-based video, Ballard invites us to do battle with our own inner voice, to experience life without it, while musing upon its significance within our own lives.

She is exhibiting with: Hazel Brill, Nikhil Vettukattil and Sam Williams.

Exhibition dates: 20 January to 22 April 2018
