"It may take a while to figure out that there is just the one British painter called Justin Mortimer – one painter, but with two careers.
He’s the one who won the National Gallery’s BP Portrait Award in 1991 and subsequently took on portrait commissions of the great and the good such as rower Steve Redgrave and playwright Harold Pinter.
There was also a painting of HM The Queen which is unlikely to have gone down well in Buck Palace as it showed the monarch with a separated head.
But he’s also the one whose dark and slightly disturbing paintings are now on show at Djanogly Art Gallery in an exhibition paired with prints by the late Pop artist Richard Hamilton." more at Nottingham Post
