About

Love and obsession are central to Corinna Spencer’s work. Through portraiture she explores the effects and manifestations of fixation or romantic love from both sides of a relationship, whether real or fictional.  Portrait Of A Lady is an ambitious installation of over 1000 unique paintings, created specifically for the Castle’s South Hall stairwell. Celebrating the unidentified or unknown female sitter throughout art history and popular culture, Portrait of a Lady also features the Photo Booth Girls painting series, four of which were selected for the Nottingham Castle Open 2014, and are exhibited here in full for the first time.
