A display of portraits by Susan Aldworth at the National Portrait Gallery, London
Susan Aldworth is an internationally renowned artist represented by GV Art gallery, London. A display of her works entitled The Portrait Anatomised will be shown at the National Portrait Gallery, London in room 38a from March - September 2013. The Portrait Anatomised is an installation of three life-sized portraits of individuals living successfully with epilepsy.
Epilepsy is caused by disrupted electrical charges in the brain, and while it affects 1 in 100 people in Britain, there are many misconceptions about the condition. Aldworth's unique working methods combine traditional print processes with state-of-the-art images such as medical brain scans, EEG data and contemporary digital photography. Each portrait is two metres high and made up of nine separate prints. The project has been funded by Guy's and St Thomas' Charity and is supported by the Epilepsy Society.
