On:growing - Part I is part of a collection of metaphorical portraits of people which celebrate life and growth beyond youth.

Drawing on the metaphor of trees as organisms which develop and flourish throughout life, the work celebrates the rich and varied lives of specific individuals whose ages span the latter half of a century.

On:growing part I is a product of conversations with the artist’s acquaintance, Lizzie. The tree in the image, standing tall, alone, in the process of becoming established, resonates with Lizzie’s understanding of herself as a ‘living work in progress’.

Lottie is an artist researcher who uses metaphor expressed through illustration and installation to voice personal stories. Her work aims to question the frameworks through which we view ourselves, each other and the world around us. Through her work she looks at stereotypes around mental and physical health and social and cultural divides.
