New Exhibition – ‘Lunar Sea’ opening 6th September



Hello all,

It’s been a while since my last newsletter and there is lots to fill you in on!Header

Lunar Sea – Transition Gallery

Linda Lencovic / Miranda Lopatkin / Nina Ogden

6-29 September 2013

New Moon Preview: Thursday 5 September

Gallery Open: Fri–Sun 12-6pm

‘Beware the moon … and stick to the road …’

An American Werewolf in London (1981)

Stemming from the Middle Ages, the ‘lunar lunacy effect’ where the moon and its tides were widely believed to cause people to change into werewolves or vampires, has lately had a huge resurgence in popular culture. Sharp canines gnaw at the collective conscience, mirroring the darker side of the human psyche. Surfing this explosive wave of tide-driven mania, this exhibition brings together artists Linda Lencovic, Miranda Lopatkin and Nina Ogden, each exploring different aspects of lunacy and symbolism in the human psyche through painting, drawing and photography.


‘Looking In’ at the National Portrait Gallery

‘Looking In’ is the third picture I have had exhibited at the National Portrait Gallery. It was on display as part of a group exhibition called ‘Behind The Scenes’. The exhibition has unfortunately finished now but the image will be part of other shows coming up in the future so you will still have a chance to see it.


London Jewish Artists Salon

18:30 – 21:30 on September 9th 2013

I have been asked to speak at the London Jewish Artists Salon at Ironmongers’ Hall, Barbican. I will be talking about my art, my inspirations and the journey I take to create my works. Two other arts professionals will be joining to discuss a range of topics surrounding the art world.

If you are interested and would like to attend please contact Juliet Simmons at on 020 7239 4916.


Get In Touch

That’s about it for this newsletter but please do keep checking my website and social media feeds for updates on all my art movements. If you are interested in any of my work please feel free to get in touch.

Thanks for reading!!!

JM London shows ‘Time and Place Archive’ work

The Lovely people at the Jewish Museum, London, are currently showing my work in its cafe gallery. The show consisting of work from my ‘Time and Place Archive’ series will be up for a few months. Its free to gain entry to the ground floor of the JM where my work is but the rest of the museum is wonderful so I really would recommend a full visit.

The museum is also showing my National Portrait Gallery commissioned work ‘A Spark of Life’

Meet The Artist (me)

As part of this exhibition I am going to hold a meet the artist event. On Sunday 3rd of March TBC. I will be on hand at the JM to talk about my work and enjoy a cup of tea. I will also have a collection of limited addition prints for sale. It would be lovely to see as many of you as possible there. Email me if you have any questions.


R.B Kitaj

Also the JM at the same time has an exhibition from one of my early inspirations, the artist R.B Kitaj. If you visit this exhibition keep and eye out for the guide to the jewish museum written by yours truly where I have picked out some of the amazing objects in the gallery that relate and link to the Kitaj exhibition.

My new window art at Nesta.

Hello all,

I was recently asked to create some bespoke pieces of art for Nesta, the innovation company. I was asked to create some work to be displayed in the windows of their HQ in Chancery Lane.

I have displayed images from my newest project, the ‘ Time and Place Archive’. I decided to create art that directly plays with the opacity of the images and translucency of the windows, which is in keeping with my exploration of multi layers within one image. These images are bought to life with an added layer, the street life outside.

Here are the results!



And the IJAY award goes to…


I have some very exciting news that I not only want to inform you about but also invite you along too.

I’m pleased to say I have been selected as a finalist for the International Jewish Artists of the Year Awards!

My picture ‘The Glance’ is on show at the Ben Uri Gallery along with all the other great finalists.

The show is open from now until the 29th of May with the awards ceremony being held on the 22nd.

Thanks again for all your continued support and I hope to see as many of you there as possible.

Tired Projectors

Last week one of my slide projectors decided to stop projecting slides. Annoying at first but it was quite exciting opening her up and seeing what was inside. Here are a couple of pictures I thought might be of interest.

We managed to fix her so keep posted for new images and other work.

Miranda Lopatkin and’s true!

Well we are both being promoted in the same Opus Art Gallery newsletter anyway! My bit below… (you know about Banksy already…)

Happy Days and Patterns

Miranda Lopatkin’s photographic prints deal with memory and loss, and often have a melancholic taint. Lopatkin creates her work from slides and photographs, which she projects and re-photographs.

We have a new collection of work by Lopatkin available from her Time and Place series including Patterns (pictured top) and Happy Day (pictured bottom).

These new works feature images from the National Portrait Gallery slide library, and Lopatkin is literally breathing new life into the slides as they are projected onto people. As the images juxtapose with the model neither slide nor model is individual as each one is unmistakably merged with one informed by the other.

These archival prints are from an edition of 5, measure 38 x 26.5 inches, and are priced from £600.

We offer a number of interest-free payment options, contact us for more information.

Click here to buy from Opus or contact me for other limited edition prints.

‘Set Your Heart’ New moving image!

©Miranda Lopatkin 2011

My new image that moves was made especially for an exhibition in Winchester this summer, A Prophet’s Path.

Set Your Heart is an investigation into the heart from both an anatomical and philosophical research.

I’m enjoying creating new images for this series; exploring all kinds of self declared prophets from biblical and mythical to contemporary figures….watch this space for more news…

Gallery Huit Open Salon Private View

Here are a couple of images from the opening night of the Open Salon exhibition at Gallery Huit in Arles, France.


Three of my works are being exhibited at this lovely château until September 18th.

This show also travels to Penang in Malaysia in the new year so if you happen to be in that part of the world pop in and take a look at this great exhibition.
