North + South
Chris Lewis-Jones’s surreal works, which transform subjects as varied as a cricketer, the Red Cross Knight, toys, and tea trays into a wry palimpsest of English traditions, particularly as presented for tourist consumption, have a sympathetic ancestor in Burra’s apparently serene southern landscapes, which upon closer inspection reveal themselves to be full of sinister implications, insinuations and booby traps.
