Why well-connected artist Nancy Cadogan’s new exhibition is a must see

ANNABEL SAMPSON, Tatler, February 6, 2020

'Nancy Cadogan, previously described by Tatler as ‘the new Paula Rego’ will feature in an exhibition that has just opened at the Lyndsey Ingram Gallery in Mayfair. The new ‘Wall of Small’ will be a celebration of the smaller, finer things. All things ‘small yet perfectly formed’ – it showcases Nancy’s bright and observed style at its very best. Paintings that Lyndsey Ingram, the director of the gallery, describes as ‘true gems’.

Nancy will be exhibited alongside contemporary bigwigs David Hockney, outspoken potter, Grayson Perry (who she is pictured with below) and Royal Academician Cornelia Parker. The paintings are bursts of exuberant colour, a true uplift for any wall.


Nancy’s contributions to the ‘Wall of Small’ are called Tea Rituals – a teapot and cup set against an evocative apricot orange backdrop. Cadogan explains, ‘I am interested in the intersection between inanimate objects, which having often been made by the human hand become full of meaning and a way of connection.’ She adds: ‘the ancient tradition of tea ceremonies is a fascinating aspect of the Eastern culture’.'
