Acquired at the Master of Fine Arts (MFA) degree show at Wimbledon College of Arts, University of the Arts London, Paper Cage aims to engage the viewer on different levels. Chloe Wing’s work is inspired by fairy tales and the people she knows. The cages explore the challenges and barriers - sometimes self-imposed or by society - faced by excluded groups or individuals, and the restrictions and boundaries placed on them. These feelings and ideas are revealed as the narrative is played out on the walls inside and outside the paper cage.
The Ingram Collection of Modern British and Contemporary Art is generously lent to The Lightbox by serial entrepreneur and local resident Chris Ingram. It is comprised of 650 works of art, of which over 400 are by the most important artists of the Modern British era.
A new and growing element to The Collection is an interest in contemporary and emerging artists. With his involvement in, and support for, students from the major art schools in London, Chris Ingram has bought work by recently graduated artists. These range from traditional works in oils and on paper, to installation and digital.
